Support for Marriage Equality Cases Paints Facebook Red

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the Proposition 8 case, officially known as Hollingsworth v. Perry, in late March and now is hearing arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act.

Both cases deal with marriage equality, an issue that has been in the ballots and courts for quite a while. According to the New York Times, more and more Americans support same-sex marriage. A CNN News poll released in March showed that 53 percent of Americans now are in favor of marriage equality.

One way people have been trying to show their support for marriage equality was by changing their profile picture on Facebook to a pale red equals sign on a red background. As the days passed, more and more made the change.

While the Supreme Court’s final decisions will not be made until June of this year, it seems the public’s opinion is slowly turning. It only remains to see how the Court will decide.

If you would like to hear an oral recording or read transcripts from the Prop. 8 hearing, you can find it at USA Today.
