Speaker Boehner Tells ABC He Would Oppose Gay Marriage Even If Family Member Came Out As Gay

Boehner: I Would Oppose Gay Marriage Even If Family Member Came Out As Gay

During an exclusive Sunday interview with ABC, House Speaker John Boehner told Martha Raddatz that he is unwavering in his opposition to gay marriage and would not change his opinion on the subject if a family member came out as gay like Senator Rob Portman‘s son earlier this week.

“Rob is a great friend and a longtime ally. I appreciate that he has changed his views on this but I believe marriage is a union of a man and a woman,” Boehner told Raddatz.

Raddatz inquired what he would do if one of his relatives turned out to be gay. Would he he change his views on this subject?

“I believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. It’s what I grew up with it. It’s what I believe. It’s what my church teaches me. I can’t imagine that position would ever change,” he said.
