Should the two "Catholic" justices who voted for gay marriage be excommunicated?

I would like your view on how Catholic judges might adhere to Catholic morality when they decide the cases before them.

There's very much a rational basis for distinguishing between heterosexual and homosexual couples when it comes to marriage - heterosexual marriages can produce children, and it's better for children to be raised by a mother and a father. That's how a Catholic judge should have decided this without having to resort to "because God says so".

There's also a difference between a Catholic judge in a state where the legislature has allowed gay "marriage", and that judge is called upon to, for example, decide who gets the property when one of them dies without a will, or saying that one of them isn't allowed to testify against the other because the state considers them married. But what happened yesterday isn't that - it was several Catholic justices agreeing that the state has to allow gay "marriage" because there's no difference between men and women, which is false, and in no way required by the law. They made it up yesterday because it's their opinion that gay "marriage" should be legal. It ignores that the primary purpose of marriage is children - not love - and you don't have to be religious to see that having children is how a society continues.
