Maryland smackdown:

"In Annapolis, (Capital of) Maryland, at a hearing on the proposed Constitutional Amendment to prohibit gay marriage, Jamie Raskin, professor of law at AU, was requested to testify and he did so.

At the conclusion of his testimony, a right-wing senator rose to say, 'Mr. Raskin, my Bible says that marriage shall occur only between a man and a woman. What do you have to say about that?'

Raskin: '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.'"

Having been out of state, I haven't actually been following Maryland's gay marriage fight that closely. Anyone back home have a feel for how it's going?
