My understanding is that the bill was not confined to individuals, or "creative" services.  It applied also to small and large businesses, corporations, public employees, etc.  All of the above could choose to not provide goods, services, health care, information or anything else to people on "religous objections"

one of the reasons given for the veto was it being too broad.  Corporations do not have religous convictions.

Those who think this falls hard on Christians need to take their personal selves out of it.  Meaning, the scope of this would have been used in other ways.  It was only disguised as a simple bill where those who believe as they do would not have to provide 'creative' services to those they feel are beneath them.

It could have reached much further than that.
