Speaker of the house, Republican Congressman John Boehner, today spoke out against the recent change in position of Republican Senator Rob Portman regarding the issue of marriage equality.
Senator Portman recently changed his position on marriage equality after relaying the news that his own son had decided to be gay.
Normally a story like this would gather the oohs and ahhs of the general population, but the speaker of the house decided to show just how firm their party was to any suggestion of being moved by any example of parental love that could possibly impact a human into changing any section of the republican party platform.
When confronted with the news during a liberal media interview, Speaker Boehner stated, “I can’t imagine ever supporting this. My opinion is as stuck in the early 1900′s as anyone in the tea party. I’m certainly not looking to be challenged in a primary battle that’s for sure!”
Although it is quickly becoming a non-issue with the majority of the countries populace, the leader of the republican party in the US house of oppressionist appears to be immune to the controversy.
At this time it should be pointed out that Speaker Boehner’s personal views reflect nothing close to the compassion or understanding of human rights that is expected of our elected representatives. His personal opinion is not only a stain on his own legacy, it’s a stain on the very house that he currently represents.
