Congressman Mike Pompeo, R-Kansas, issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision on the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8:

“The court’s attack on marriage—as defined as between one man and one woman—is both sad and counter to the most profound tradition of our great nation.

“As an attorney and a conservative, I am confounded by the Supreme Court’s bizarre set of decisions that found DOMA unconstitutional and didn’t rule on the merits of Prop 8. The Supreme Court has taken the position of refusing the right of Congress to legislate federal law based on the will of the people. This is a travesty.

“I remain dedicated to strengthening the institution of traditional marriage.”
