Today John Boehner told Martha Raddatz, host of ABC's "This Week," that he "can't imagine" himself ever supporting gay marriage, even after Senator Portman's high-profile reversal on the issue.

MARTHA RADDATZ: Can you imagine yourself in a situation where you reversed your decision, as Portman has, on gay marriage if a child of yours or someone you love told you they were gay?

SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER: Listen, I believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. All right. 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.
