Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) on Wednesday said the Supreme Court's striking of the Defense of Marriage Act violated the "clear will" of the American people.
"Marriage was created by the hand of God. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy God has instituted," Bachmann said in a statement.
"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.," she added. "What the Court has done will undermine the best interest of children and the best interests of the United States."
