And the answer is: The Massachusetts judiciary did it

Here's the question, posed by Jesse Jackson:

"How many of you — someone from your family — married somebody of the same sex?" Mr. Jackson asked of the congregation of about 500. After nobody raised a hand, he asked, "Then how did that [same-sex marriage] get in the middle of the agenda?"

"If your issues are cancer and Medicare and education and jobs and Social Security and decent housing, then how did someone else put their agenda in the front of the line?" he asked.

Massachusetts. Now, where have I heard of that state before?
