When the state is required to treat people equally, why should they fund organizations that defy that rule?

And they will continue to do so.
As long as those organizations treat people equally.

And they are continued to do so as long as they don't violate some basic tenets.

No. You simply just do not get government funding for it.
You don't have to "bow" to anything, as long as you're willing to discriminate on your own dime

Maybe a better question for you is why should gays pay taxes that go to fund organizations that discriminate against them?

What I find hilarious about your approach is how one-sided it is.
You want to chastise the government for not funding a discriminating group, but you fail to question why the group in question prizes the discrimination above the orphans.
Why do some Christians feel obligated to force some orphans to remain orphans rather than allow them to be adopted by perfectly good parents?
