Another notable quotable
This comes from the MD debate of gay marriage. Jamie Raskin, who is running for state senate in district 20, testified on Wednesday, March 1st before the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee:
At the end of his testimony, Republican Senator Nancy Jacobs asked, "Mr. Raskin, my Bible says marriage is only between a man and a woman. What do you have to say about that?"Very nice.
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.
