'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. And I ask again, if we allow secular discrimination based on the argument of "religious liberty," then where is the line drawn? We open a nasty door. 

Russian Track Star Defends Anti-Gay Laws, Then Claims She Was ‘Misunderstood’ - The old story told again. Someone says something homophobic, gets called out because of it, and finally says they were misunderstood.

  U.S. Olympic Committee: Athletes Should ‘Comply’ With Russia’s Anti-Gay Law - This is not good. It's a powder keg just waiting to explode.  

No, Fox, There Isn't A "Reverse Don't Ask Don't Tell" Targeting Christians - Ugh. A network which pushes anti-gay propaganda is spooky.

 Prop 8 proponents, having already ignored constitutional validity, now determined to ignore millions of Californians - Poor Prop 8 supporters. Prop 8 is DEAD and you can't resurrect the corpse, so stop trying.
