(Newser) – One of the most-circulated comments in the wake of today's Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage came from Nancy Pelosi. She and others at a news conference were asked to respond to remarks from Michele Bachmann, who earlier said: "Marriage was created by the hand of God. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy God has instituted."

  • Pelosi's response: "Who cares?" ("It's the two-handed shrug that really makes it," adds Joe Coscarelli at Daily Intel. Click the link to see video.)
Others, including gay Congressman Mark Takano of California, followed with lengthier responses.

In SPITE of S/C rulings, and the willingness and election of global law enforcement populations to support /NOT support that decision, this is one that will do greater HARM than good. It makes NO DIFFERENCE what gender someone is or whom they are loved by and share their love and life with; the sanctity of faith and family are two things that will no doubt bring an untimely death to more gays and homosexuals than anyone might have first imagined. People have the right to be loved and to love others, and those rights should not be seperated by tax laws and benefits. What has to remain seperate is the ideal that gay couples can affectively and adequately raise heterosexual children is a myth and a fallacy perpetuated by persons sharing a controversial lifestyle yet wanting to raise children as if nothing was different. I'm sorry, but our children are innocent. They are born into this world knowing nothing more than the need to be cared for. They learn to walk from need, to speak from association, how to dress from the examples that are set for them, and right from wrong by those who would teach them by example. They are never going to know different if the only loving association they are bound to is one of homosexual deviance. God made us as we are for the purpose of perpetuating life, love and family. NO ONE has the right to change that.
