John Boehner 'Can't Imagine' Ever Supporting Gay Marriage

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.

Did you know? There are actually a lot of things John Boehner can't imagine, such as:

  • A duck and a cat who are friends
  • Having a normal sized body but tiny, tiny hands
  • That Spring Breakers could possibly live up to the hype
  • Dying, like really dying, and not being alive, like forever though
  • What traffic lights looks like if you're color blind
  • A peanut butter cup that has dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate on the outside
  • How they make that fake sugar that goes in sugarless gum
  • Being a fighter pilot, or a majestic reindeer
  • What happens to Atreyu at the end of the Neverending Story
  • Why it's called the Neverending Story in the first place
  • Having kids who move out of the house and don't mooch off of your family talk plan or steal your Netflix password, Christ, it is nine dollars a month and you sure seemed to have enough money for that ridiculous destination wedding to Vietnam for that friend you don't even talk to that much anymore
  • Horses that can talk
  • What everyday life must have been like in Colonial Williamsburg even after taking the tour
