Unconstitutional to ban gay marriage in CA

In the eagerly awaited opinion likely to be appealed to the state's highest court, San Francisco County Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer said that withholding marriage licenses from gays and lesbians is unconstitutional.

"It appears that no rational purpose exists for limiting marriage in this state to opposite-sex partners," Kramer wrote.
Stop the world. I want to get off.

Ok,
A)The irrationality of a law has no bearing on its constitutionality.
B)Gays and Lesbians keep on demanding equal rights. Well, news flash, they have them. We don't ban homosexuality, and they have every right guaranteed by th U.S. Constitution. While there is a generally hostile attitude toward gays in the country, we can't legislate feelings.
C)Whatever happened to the cry from the gay community to "Leave it up to the states" when W. proposed a constitutional ammendment? Where are they now?
The people have spoken, and the courts are just going to do their thing anyway.
