    that unless they get to apply their rules to everyone, including those who don't believe in their religion, then THEY are the ones being discriminated against. It's a standard Republican tactic to conflate any opposition to this theocratic totalitarianism as opposition to "religious freedom", since they know that most Americans support he latter.

    Basically, they are liars for Jesus. They lack the moral courage to actually stand up for their true belief, which is that they believe their religious laws are universal and should apply to non-believers in their particular narrow interpretation of Christianity just as they do to believers. That would require defending an unpopular view, and so they cloak it in this kind of Frank Luntz bullshit.
