House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner said on Sunday he cannot imagine ever supporting gay marriage even though Senator Rob Portman, his friend and fellow Ohio Republican, very publicly reversed his opposition last week.

I love it when people like you (i.e., self indulgent stupid types) are so "sure" of complete bullshit that you hope makes you sound significant and powerful. Of course, you are neither but even somebody with your own emotional and intellectual challenges knows that.

But a question for those not so stupid. Why should Rep. Boehner be required, or even expected, to change his mind if, in fact, he does not support gay marriage even though a friend has a now-differing position? Do any of the staunch pro gay marriage advocates change their mind because someone dares have a different perspective?

Because he swore to uphold the constitution and banning same sex marriage is unconstitutional. this will be the law in our lifetimes and Boehner and you will be called by your rightful names when it is over.

It has not yet been ruled to be so by the SCotUS. Until then, it's just a matter of opinion.

Its not about how you personally feel stupid... Its about equal rights that should be afforded all Americans under the constitution... I personally think christains are the scum of the earth, but acknowledge that they should have every right to be the scum of the earth under civil law

Homosexuality was NEVER in the constitution. Sen Portman is suppoting his son because he has to. I don't know any parent that wishes that their child would grow up to be gay. In fact it's quite the opposite and I'm sure a disappointment that his son failed him as to provide his own father with one of the greatest honors and achievements for any father, and that is to be a grandfather.
A$$cramming is much more important for some.
So you are blaming the son as if he has done something wrong? What has the son done wrong? Absolutely nothing wrong!

Hey. You might want to consider the following before continuing your condemnations.

Jesus only gave lessons on compassion. I doubt Jesus cares about such nonsense.

If there was no such concept as marriage would two men be as 'equal' as a man and a woman?
Or is it possible because of their physical and psychological complexities or capabilities that they could never be the same.
CHA-CHING!
Not the same.

Some things are both the same and different. Consider two couples, a man and a woman and a man and a man. The first has two people, the second has two people. Therefore they are the same. The first has two genders the second has one gender, therefore, they are different.

You are both correct and incorrect.

How Zen is that?

I wish. Unfortunately, the population in his district is too rednecky. Most agree with him. His is the district with the church that had the "touchdown Jesus" statue on their front lawn. We're talking pentacostal and Baptist wack-a-doodles.

Chick-Fil-A Now Firing Women So They Can Stay Home And Make Babies, For Jesus
by Rebecca Schoenkopf
Hey hey Chick-fil-A, how many women did you fire for having children at home so they could be “stay home mothers” in blatant disregard for sex-discrimination laws and common decency and humanity on top of all your other pressing PR problems that are totally “neutral” in the culture wars today? Oh, just the one, Brenda Honeycutt of Duluth, Georgia? But maybe like five more? In just one restaurant? Well depending on your judge that may not be enough to show a pattern of willful discrimination, so by all means, carry on!
GLAAD reports on Honeycutt’s gender discrimination suit, wherein Honeycutt points to five other women who were either demoted or terminated and replaced by men; in at least one other case, this happened after the woman became a mother. But here’s the kicker: defendant Jeff Howard apparently told Honeycutt that was why he was firing her. Dude, time for a refresher course from HR.
Off-topic and REALLY interesting. Got any newsies so it can have a thread?

Not really. When or if SCOTUS (not you) declares it Constitutional, then Speaker Boehner will have to support it in a legal context.

From a realistic observation, if Pres. Obama gets to pack the court (and he very well might), you'll more likely get your ruling. If that happens, it will then be the law of the land, and I agree that it may likely happen in our lifetime. I will, of course, disagree with it (as I have done with other non gay oriented SCOTUS rulings), but only THEN would it be considered Constitutional.

Until that time, you're just blowing smoke.
