One sees below folks who consider themselves libertarians conflating personal moral judgments with impositions by the state or individuals. The whole point of freedom is that individuals can hold whatever views they want, can associates with whomever they want, and can recommend and advocate whatever they want. The values that formed our culture and our laws didn't spring out of a vacuum, they evolved and were passed down to us from societies that learned them in the course of being accountable for their behavior. We've lost them, and libertarians who value those inherited views so lightly risk losing the foundations on which liberty is based.
