On Wednesday, March 1, 2006, at a hearing on the proposed Constitutional 
Amendment 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, my Bible 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.
