Transcript: Remarks by Rep. Tim Huelskamp on the Supreme Court’s rulings on same-sex marriage

Partial transcript of remarks by Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) on the Supreme Court’s rulings on same-sex marriage on June 26, 2013:

In the decision today, the Supreme Court has offered two very contradictory rulings.

On one hand, they claim to make their decision that the states have a right to decide the definition of marriage.

In their second decision, they say the state’s voters do not have the right to decide.

And the dissent on the first decision was very clear this court has taken upon itself the radical attempt to re-define marriage.

I think what gets lost in this judicial attempt to short circuit the democratic process is the needs of our children.

With this decision, the courts have allowed the desire of adults to trump the needs of children. Every child deserves a mommy and a daddy, and with this decision, they undercut the needs of our children.
