    How do you explain that?
    Please show where he "bragged" about signing DOMA into law. He refused to even to sign it publicly. Most Presidents make a big press deal out of bills they sign that they are "proud" of. Heck, so do governors, Governor Pence providing the perfect example with this law. And there was plenty of support at that time for a Constitutional Amendment. Had Clinton not signed it, it is more than possible and even very likely that Congress would have passed a Constitutional Amendment. With DOMA in place, til support for same sex marriage could increase (and anyone with half a brain could tell even at that time which way that was headed), it was a way to stave off a Constitutional Amendment making it much harder to get repealed.

    And DADT was a compromise at the time so that recruiters couldn't actually ask those trying to join up if they are gay/homosexual (and yes, that was asked, and completely legal to turn someone away for answering before). It also didn't allow people in the military, including a person's chain of command to ask if someone were gay/homosexual and have that legally held against them. It made such a question illegal for the military to ask of a servicemember so that gay service members could actually serve, without lying about it, so long as they didn't come out and declare themselves gay/homosexual in a way that was a matter of public record. It also allowed for Clinton to remove the restriction on being gay as a qualifier for serving in pretty much all federal government jobs, including making it against the law to use as a reason to deny a person a security clearance of any kind.

Liberals just have a very tough time telling the two apart because so few things are a matter of conscience to them
    I am not incorrect, as the court rulings have clearly shown. They refused on the basis that they felt that a gay person was wrong to get married, to hold that particular event. It was based solely on the people involved in the event, not the event itself. They are being refused a product from the bakery due to their sexuality/relative sexes. Just because they could purchase other products, doesn't mean that it isn't still illegal to refuse service to someone based on their sexuality in the states of Oregon and Colorado.

    I don't think it's that they don't like the results so much as it is that they really really really need to change the subject from Iran, Yemen, and Hillary's emails.

    Sounds like the law of unintended consequences, brought to us by the left.

    As for the brag, see the link I provided. It was the 90's so I doubt a youtube clip exists, but you are welcome to look for it.

    DADT suppressed the rights of gays, which the left claims is a bad thing. He could have just ordered that gays would be admitted to the military. Its clear many in the left regret DADT, if you google it you will see that.

    Yes, the 90's was 15+ years ago, but up until an election 2 years ago, Obama was against gay marriage. Not against selling gays wedding cakes-but the actual marriage.

You are correct about 1 thing though....religious freedom does not equal bigotry....but those who seek to hide behind their religion as a shield to discriminate are in the most purest form bigots.
    One need not hide behind "religion", religious freedom guaranteed in the 1st amendment. What on earth could be wrong with the courts considering religious objections to participating in events that one finds objectionable to ones conscience in view of their sincere religious beliefs? That is a principal reason why the religious migrated to the colonies in the first place.

    Secondly I find your line of questioning telling. You asked me WWJD, as if this law is about Christians against gays. It isn't, it's about all religions and its about any government oppression directed at the religious.

    Do you think all religious have an obligation to agree with views espoused by government officials?
    Do you support government directing religious practice?
    Do you support government criminalizing the views of the religious?

    yet no businesses have come out and even hinted at wanting to deny services.... not a single one.
