They think that passing these stupid discriminatory laws will keep those other people in line and under control. Why are the so concerned with the behavior of people who do not acknowledge their religion?
That's why I wish they would pass these laws, but targeting only members of their own faith, and then really have to live with the consequences. Like how about no wedding services of any kind to Christians who have gotten divorced and are remarrying? How about no divorces-- for Christians? Isn't divorce an abomination? How about requiring that internet providers publish the names of all Christians who look at porn (lusting in their hearts). How about having all pharmacists refuse to sell Christians any medication because, they should pray to god alone for healing.
Adultery, fornication, abortion, contraception, STD treatment, gay marriage, interfaith marriage, interracial marriage, drug use, eating shellfish-- anything not biblical should be prevented, punished or refused--but only for Christians.
Wonder why such laws specifically forbidding believers from violating their own beliefs aren't proposed as often as the general anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-sex ed, anti-evolution laws. They don't pass laws that favor their religious beliefs if those laws would actually force them to follow their own rules.
They don't really want to live by their own religious rules, but they want to be able to feel superior and holy by punishing other people-- for not living by the religious rules of total strangers! Seriously, do they want to live by Muslim or Hindu laws? The prospect of that terrifies them. So why don't they understand that other people don't want to live by their religious rules?
