John Boehner was interviewed today by ABC's Martha Raddatz. She asked Boehner if he had spoken to his fellow Ohioan, Sen. Rob Portman, about the latter's change of heart on gay marriage. Boehner said he had. Raddatz asked Boehner if he could imagine changing his own views on gay marriage, if he should ever find himself in a situation similar to Portman's.
Boehner said no, he could not imagine changing his opposition to gay marriage, even to support a gay son.
“I believe that marriage is the union of one man, one woman. It’s what I grew up with, it’s what I believe, it’s what my church teaches me.”
“And I can’t imagine that position would ever change.”
