Not every gay person foes the anal thing. And often enough, the partner is the object of passion/adoration/sexual fulfillment/reason for living. I know that you think it is wrong and I am sympathetic to that view. Nevertheless, it is unjust to dismiss all gay males as anus worshipers - certainly not all male heteros are v-worshipers.

They have the same knowledge of Scripture that Judge Judy contestants do of the law.

Law in the sense that no one is allowed to commit murder - even if one of the parties is legitimately evil. Law in the sense that while some things may be spiritually poisonous they can be legally sold. Law in the sense that everyone has to play by the same rules regardless of how entitled they may feel in not doing so.

People have funny ideas about the Geneva Conventions - what they require of their signers and who is entitled to their protections.

Through law.
I don't doubt that some 'hostile work environment' statute would be employed. Your scenario does have appeal though.
Perhaps 6% of the population is gay. While I don't know how many organizations have religious people heading them who are interested in not having gay employees or not providing abortions I would guess the answer is, 'very few'. The actual impact on gays is incredibly small to nonexistent. The financial impact to abortifacient-seeking employees is also incredibly small. In short, it costs next to nothing to let religious orgs opt out of certain fed requirements. So LET them.
Fanatics, yes. The 'holy sacrament' thing? Not so much.
'“The problem with this executive order is that it paves the way for the next one – which could withhold the tax-exempt status or broadcast licenses for religious organizations holding biblical beliefs with which the administration disagrees,” Jeffress told me.' Not really. That will be an entirely different fight and this current executive order won't offer support to the destruction of religion's tax exemptions.
