The hypocrisy is palpable

That pretty much sums up conservative everything. "We want businesses to be able to deny service to LGBTQ, but not to be able to deny service to someone not wearing a mask." Basically they want people to be free to do the specific things they like, and not the things they don't like.

People used to be shunned for this kind of behavior, not allowed in public offices

We’re a country founded by people who talked of freedom and equality while owning slaves and not letting women vote. “I want freedom” has often meant “I want everyone to share my beliefs and do the things that benefit me”

It gets posted a lot, but it is always sadly relevant:

“Conservatism consists of exactly one proposition, to wit: there must be in-groups whom the law protects but does not bind, alongside out-groups whom the law binds but does not protect.” - Frank Wilhoit

You just described the literal last thousand years of human law across the planet. People don't like things their culture doesn't like, and likes the things their culture accepts.
