No, you've misunderstood the problem. This law isn't specifically about dealing with gays although the same sex marriage revolution was a motivator, I'm sure. It could also apply to a non-gay issue like abortion. This amendment was about, for example, preventing a local jurisdiction from going beyond what the state of Arizona has decided is an acceptable infringement on religious liberty. It wouldn't change anything about what discrimination is allowed in Arizona, it would just prevent local jurisdictions from changing what is allowed.

"Claimed religious beliefs" aren't enough, btw, and it in no way allows people with legitimate religious beliefs to discriminate against "anyone".
