Homosexual judge approves of genderless marriage in California Prop 8 decision

I have been using this quote from the opinion to show how this judge simply created new law. Regardless of whether you support homosexual marriage, everyone should be concerned when a judge finds "an evolution in understanding" and then proceeds to change 6000 years of recorded human history.

 

From page 113 of the opinion:

 

"The evidence shows that the movement of marriage away from a gendered institution and toward an institution free from state-mandated gender roles reflects an evolution in the understanding of gender rather than a change in marriage. The evidence did not show any historical purpose for excluding same-sex couples from marriage, as states have never required spouses to have an ability or willingness to procreate in order to marry.... Rather, the exclusion exists as an artifact of a time when the genders were seen as having distinct roles in society and in marriage. That time has passed....."
