People actually feel discriminated against if they aren't allowed to punish people for not following their religious beliefs.
Similarly, your free speech rights are not abridged when they shout you down at a town meeting (see Obamacare Death Panels) or contain your protest a mile away from the presidential venue (see Bush)...
...but their free speech rights are shattered when a conservative says something boneheaded about rape, and everybody thinks he's a dick and won't vote for him or watch his show.
Conservatives consider their rights powers to be exercised without fear of consequence; yours are negotiable.
It's a dangerous notion.
