Stutzman: Pleased that the court did not issue a sweeping mandate

Statement issued Wednesday by Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd:

“While I am disappointed that the Court chose to strike down part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, I am absolutely certain that the American people will continue the defense of marriage in state capitals across the country. As a husband, a father, and a legislator, I will continue to defend the definition of marriage – the union of one man and one woman. Because marriage is ordained by God, instituted in every society throughout history, and the best environment for raising children, I am pleased that the court did not issue a sweeping mandate and has left marriage policy to the work of our democratic process.”
