Rep. Louie Gohmert again decried the Supreme Court's decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act, saying in a speech on the House floor that without a law that defines marriage as between a man and a woman, legalizing polygamy and bigamy will also now be "justifiable."

"Once you move marriage beyond the scope of a man and a woman, you really don't end up with a good place to put a limit," Gohmert, R-Texas, said, adding: "I think polygamy is wrong, bigamy is wrong, and it's a crime in many places -- but how will that be justifiable now that the court has removed this?
