Simply being asked to abide the law is just too much

How about some afternoon whine?  In this piece, noted Christian Right leader Gary Bauer uses the occasion of the possibility of repeal for Don't Ask, Don't Tell, to suggest that "[i]f the Left had its way, President Obama would promptly rescind the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy for gays in the military and apply it to govern the conduct of another demographic -- Christians."  

That's right.  I'm sorry, but the left actually doesn't care how people worship, but we do expect all people to abide by the laws equally, and I'm so sorry, Mr. Bauer, that the rules of this war forbid us from "spreading the Word" to all the "turrists" in Afghanistan, but that's just how it is.  If Fundamentalist Christianity is really a faith for grown-ups, they should be able to handle things like that.

The rest of the piece is just the usual diatribe about Bad Things Brown People Did, and Why Do We Have To Be Nice To The Koran, blah blah blah.  

So there you go.
