Why are evangelicals writing laws? What's next muslims? Wiccans? Final Solutions?

Many red states have been passing so called "religious freedom bills" Tennessee being the latest.
What I am wondering. Is how does baking a cake for someone who happens to be attracted to someone of the same sex interfere with the way one practices their faith?
Personally I see it as nothing more than giving evangelical Christians the ability to discriminate without having to worry about the possibility of lawsuits.
The same logic could be used to say that someone should be allowed to refuse service to Christians or Muslims because that is what my religious beliefs tell me. This is a big step backwards in treating all people with equality and basic human rights. Nobody should be refused rights of service because of the way they are born. Science has shown us that sexual preference is not a choice. However treating all humans as equals is a choice.
How does denying a homosexual a wedding cake show Christs love.
There are two laws for christians to follow, Christs teachings and Secular law

Because dear one, we have free will. And no one has the right to force someone in a private business, (this is opposite of a health or education mandatory job) to go against their belief.
