I wonder why did this idea that business owners should be able to discriminate against anyone for any reason, religion, race, sex, etc only come to such prominence among conservatives only recently? Was it because suddenly these anti-discrimination laws were beginning to apply to homosexuals too? And to avoid the obvious hypocrisy of having anti-discrimination laws against religion, race, sex, etc but not against sexuality they determined all such discrimination laws had to go?

If you answered "A" to any question, then perhaps your religious liberty is indeed at stake. You and your faith group have every right to now advocate for equal protection under the law. But just remember this one little, constitutional, concept: this means you can fight for your equality -- not your superiority.
If you answered "B" to any question, then not only is your religious liberty not at stake, but there is a strong chance that you are oppressing the religious liberties of others. This is the point where I would invite you to refer back to the tenets of your faith, especially the ones about your neighbors.
