Snopes says it's true

On Wednesday, March 1st, 2006, in Annapolis 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 & 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."
