Five years, dozens of court cases and hundreds of protests later, this local mom doesn’t regret her vote for Proposition 8.

“I go with God.”

And neither does this dad.

“I believe in the Bible and that’s what I believe,” said Greg Hawkins.

But now it’s up to the Supreme Court to decide whether the 2008 voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage in California will stay or go.

Views still pretty split across our area, with many voters looking past the high court to a higher power.

“But anybody can do whatever they want. That’s the freedom of this country, I can’t say what somebody can do, I can’t judge them,” said Hawkins.

Despite his personal belief, Hawkins feels in his heart that marriage equality will come to pass.

While supporters of marriage equality believe the arc of history is on their side.

“We’ll hopefully have the opportunity to have the same rights as everyone else and be able to marry the person we love,” said David Heitstuman with the Sacramento LGBT Community Center.

No matter what decision the Supreme Court announces tomorrow, all we talked to hope that the reaction is peaceful.
