Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) has stood firmly against same-sex marriage, both during her congressional tenure and presidential campaign. The 6th District congresswoman released the following statement on the Supreme Court's decision Wednesday that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional:
"Marriage was created by the hand of God. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy God has instituted. For thousands of years of recorded human history, no society has defended the legal standard of marriage as anything other than between man and woman. Only since 2000 have we seen a redefinition of this foundational unit of society in various nations. Today, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to join the trend, despite the clear will of the people's representatives through DOMA. What the Court has done will undermine the best interest of children and the best interests of the United States."
