As a non-theist libertarian, I do not object to the idea of same-sex civil marriage, especially if & when it is approved by voters or elected representatives (I'm not sure it is a "constitutional right"). However, I think Marcos464 has a valid concern. It definitely is a constitutional right for people who disaprove of gay marriage or homosexuality in general to express their views (and even if I disagree with such people, I don't think they're all simply "bigots'") and for religious groups and authorities to choose not to perform same-sex marriages. Approval of same-sex civil marriage should not be taken as a license for coercion or intimidation of people who do not accept it for themselves or their faiths.
