Here's your link to the Daily Show visit to Eureka Springs and its look at the city's anti-discrimination ordinance.

Eureka — "the thunderdome of gay" — wins. The so-called Christian opponents lose. The dead silence when Rev. Randall Christy is asked for an example of anti-family business downtown is eloquent. Yes, Christy went to the bathroom, too. A nice closing touch comes when Christy bemoans the gays hanging out their flag everywhere you go. He was, naturally, filmed beneath Christ of the Ozarks.

Star of the show: City Council member Joyce Zeller. "Ice cream is not gender neutral?" And, for some reason, she said, the church people are "hung up on bathrooms."
