Invitation to All Points: Is gay marriage a civil right?

The issue of gay marriage, including the amendment to the Texas Constitution that specifically denies recognition of same-sex marriage, appears headed for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Some people compare the gay rights movement of today with the civil rights movement of the 1960s. Is this an apt comparison pointing to loss of individual rights, or are there valid reasons to say recognition of gay marriage is not a right?
