'Bakery under investigation for anti-gay discrimination' and other Friday midday news briefs

Sweet Cakes By Melissa, Oregon Bakery, Under State Investigation For Anti-Gay Discrimination - A lot of folks who feel that business should discriminate aren't from the generation that remembers that this sort of behavior was a hallmark of segregation, anti-Semitism, and racism against other ethnic groups.

The following is a 1950s video which implies the same message as McClurkin's. It demonstrates just how wrong McClurkin is with his "testimony."
