Despite the fact that polls consistently show that most Americans remain opposed to same-sex "marriage," and that amendments protecting true marriage have passed in 30 states in the union, several states, including Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa and California (before the court decision was overturned by popular vote) have legalized the novel institution through activist court rulings.
Now a prominent homosexualist lawyer has admitted that same-sex "marriage" supporters gain court victories against state marriage laws, not as a result of the chance success of isolated complaints by homosexual couples, but through the systematized effort of homosexualist lawyers and lobby groups who research and target sympathetic state supreme courts and groom prosecuting homosexual couples.
Camilla Taylor, a Chicago-based lawyer for the homosexual rights group Lambda Legal, confirmed in a Washington Post article today that the Iowa Supreme Court's recent decision to redefine marriage to include homosexual couples was the expected result of a seven-year-effort by homosexualists to win over the Midwestern state.
The Iowa Supreme Court ruled unanimously to redefine marriage two weeks ago.
"We were all deeply disappointed by the vote in California, but we were all hopeful for Iowa," Taylor told the Washington Post.
The Post report details Taylor's steady effort to overturn Iowa law through the courts, including regular travel to Iowa from Chicago for years to conduct research and prepare for the case.
When engaging the "legislative route," says the article, homosexualist activists' tactic includes selecting and grooming same-sex couples to present the "test cases" successfully and to deal well with the media attention.

Andrew Koppelman, a law professor at Northwestern, similarly told the New York Times Saturday that, "The Iowa decision is the product of a very smart legal team researching every state supreme court and every state legislature."
