While the U.S. Supreme Court has yet to announce whether it will hear a case involving California's ban on same-sex marriage, Americans on the whole (53 percent) support legalizing same-sex marriage, according to a Gallup poll released Dec. 6. Forty-six percent of people said they opposed it because of their religious beliefs and/or interpretation of biblical passages dealing with same-sex relations. (Photo: Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)
