In Annapolis, MD last week, hearings were held to discuss the proposed Constitutional ban on Gay Marriage. The following exchange between a Republican senator, and an AU law professor is illuminating. . . .

On Wednesday, March 1st, 2006, in Annapolis @ a hearing on the proposed Constitutional Amendmnt to prohibit gay marriage, Jamie Raskin, professor of law at AU was requested to testify.

At the end of his testimony, Republican Senator Nancy Jacobs said: "Mr. Raskin, m Bibl says marriage is only between a man and a woman. What do you have to say about that?"

Raskin replied: "Senator, when you took your oath of office, you placed your hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. You did not place your hand on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible."

The room erupted into applause.
