If you see me typing in "quotes", that's because I'm remembering what it was like to be a fundie and then typing as if I was one :3 "Please. Understand that I only want to share God's love with you. I mean you no harm, really. You need to stop sinning."
If he hadn't signed it with the signing statement, Congress would've overrode his veto and it would've been put in place with no restrictions.
