House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday she didn’t care about Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-Minn.) statement that no man can undo the holy institution of marriage after the high court ruled a portion of the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional.
“Who cares,” Pelosi said in response to a reporter’s question about what she thought about Bachmann reacting to the ruling by saying the decision “cannot undo God’s word.”
After the court struck down in a 5-4 decision on Wednesday Section 3 of the federal law that recognizing marriage as a union between one man and one woman, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) issued a statement.
“Marriage was created by the hand of God,” Bachmann said in the statement. “No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy God has instituted.
“Today, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to join the trend, despite the clear will of the people’s representatives through DOMA,” Bachmann said. “What the Court has done will undermine the best interest of children and the best interests of the United States.”
