Anti-Marriage Rally

I don’t support marriage—
we all know that. But I would
happily attend a christening,
although I am Christian. 

I’d go to the wedding of someone close,
also to the wedding of someone not close.
I would be handing out anti-marriage
pamphlets at the reception.

I would not attend the wedding
of my worst enemy, but I’d definitely
be surprised to be invited. I might go,
because I would like a friend.

In a hypothetical universe in which I am straight,
I suppose I would go to my own wedding.
In this scenario, I’d want marriage to be legal.
Wait, can I just go with my initial statement?

To earn the BEST LAID PLAN badge, we were to plan to remove something from a source, keeping as much as possible of the remaining text intact. 

I deleted the words gay and lesbian and text not referring to marriage/ weddings from “Gay Events That I, Marco Rubio, Would Go To,” by Colin Stokes, The New Yorker, April 17, 2015.
