No, you can’t say, “You’re a Christian so I won’t serve you,” just as this baker didn’t say, “You’re gay, so I won’t serve you.” He refused to create a cake specifically for a gay wedding, but offered to make any other baked goods or cakes the men wanted - just not a cake decorated for a gay wedding.
You could ABSOLUTELY tell a Christian, however, “I don’t bake religious cakes, sorry. I’ll gladly make you anything else you may want, but I’m not comfortable with making a cake in the shape of a cross that says ‘HE IS RISEN.’”
And if that Christian specifically sought you out only after driving past literally dozens of other bakeries that would have gladly done whatever he wanted and didn’t give two shits about what he wanted the cake to say, I’d call that Christian out for being an asshole just like I’d call out these gay men who did the same thing and were clearly more interested in making a point than having a cake made.
