Grandville shop owner receiving threats after anti-gay post

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has vowed to veto such a bill unless lawmakers extended anti-discrimination protections to gays.

He took to Facebook to express that, and the sparks flew after he posted several controversial lines, including this:
