In 2008, Californians voted to pass Proposition 8, banned same-sex couples from marriage. In response, same-sex marriage advocates filed lawsuits challenging the law. The legal battle continues next month when the issue goes before the U.S. Supreme Court.

But even without the court's input, some people may be reconsidering the their stance. Many members of the Mormon Church, one of Proposition 8's biggest backers, are now are questioning long-held beliefs about homosexuality. Steven Cuevas of the California Report has this story.
