Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) slammed the U.S. Supreme Court today for overturning the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
DOMA, signed into law by President Clinton, allowed states to not recognize gay marriages in other states. Today, Clinton applauded the overturn of the law on the Clinton Foundation website.
According to RightWingWatch.org, Rep. Gohmert was not pleased and said: "This isn't new, it's been tried over and over, and it's usually tried at the end of a great civilization."
However, Rep. Gohmert did not give any examples to back up his claim.
Rep. Gohmert also mentioned the Treaty of Paris 1783, which he said included the words: "In the name of the most holy and undivided trinity."
"What we have now is a holy quintet that goes against the laws of nature and nature’s God, and that's very unfortunate," said Rep. Gohmert referencing the five U.S. Supreme Court Justices who voted against DOMA.
