Comment Of The Day: Bible Thumping Edition

Chuck Todd Takes on Bobby Jindal and His Presidential Run

As a prophylactic against the inevitable onslaught counseling resistance to gay marriage, I'll quote a discussion from the Maryland State Senate which, I think, sums it up quite nicely:

‘At a hearing in Maryland, after hearing testimony from Democrat Jamie Raskin, State Senator Nancy Jacobs, a Republican, said, ‘My Bible says marriage is only between a man and a woman. What do you 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.’
