John Boehner: Once homophobic, always homophobic (Reuters)

Ohio Senator Rob Portman may have switched his position on gay marriage but his change of heart means nothing to lifelong homophobic John Boehner, the Speaker of the House.

Boehner, appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” says he is, and always will be, opposed to gay marriage.

Said Boehner:

Bob is a great friend and a long-time ally.  I believe that marriage is the union of one man and 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.

Portman, who was opposed to gay marriage, changed his position because he son is gay.  It took him two years after his son told him to switch sides.

Gay marriage is just one of the issues causing increasing and widening splits in the Republican Party, which preaches personal liberty but also supports right-wing issues that limit that liberty.

    Your church is wrong.
