It's not really about christians in general but about creationnists. Most of them argue that only God could have created life because it's so special. Since literalists think man was created in God's image, we are supposed to be special. One planet containing life amongst others that also contain life sound less special than an unique planet with life.

It would make life on Earth less unique but so what. It seems to me that when you look at the incredible complexity of any living cell life is pretty special no matter what planet it comes from.

Of course I agree with this, it's just that creationnists don't seem to. I wasn't giving my point of view but explaining why creationists were so adamant about Earth being the only planet with life from what I've seen them write so far.
