WASHINGTON, DC - A landmark moment, regardless of the eventual outcome. The Supreme Court is hearing arguments, whether same-sex marriages should be honored in all states.

Of course, the voices are loud on both sides, but no doubt, the times, they are a changing!

Going to church, doesn`t automatically mean believers are opposed to same-sex marriage. A Public Religion Research Institute poll says, more people of faith support marriage equality.

"I feel it`s not my place to judge anyone, I mean if that`s what you want to do, then that`s fine. Who am I to cast the first stone?" commented Darian Rankin.

In 2003, the number of Americans with religious affiliation who supported gay marriage was under 30 percent. By 2014 that number has risen to 47 percent.

"I think everybody is entitled to their own opinion and you like who you like, and as long as you`re happy with that person, go for it," said Cruz Rodriguez

A chart shows acceptance of same-sex marriage by religion. Jews being most accepting while Mormons are least.

"I was surprised that the Jewish faith was so agreeable to it but I`m not surprised that the Mormons are really, really against it," according to Steve Collins.

"I don`t believe in same-sex marriage. To me being a Mormon I think it`s a sin," said Percy Lyons.

And then, there are those who have personal reasons for opposing gay marriage.

"I don`t like same-sex marriage because my husband`s gay," explained Barbara Jordan.

Whatever the Supreme Court decides, the divide is shrinking.
