Our modern day ephors have issued their ex cathedra pronouncement on our freedom to marry, a freedom that comes from the state! Now all Americans have the freedom to get their relationship
provided it is still only with one other person officially approved by our wise overlords in the form of a license! Now all two-person relationships can be meddled with, micromanaged, and torn asunder by unelected bureaucrats and judges. Now all couples can have the freedom to release intimate details of their lives to the Tax Gestapo in order to keep back some of their money normally taken through theft under threats of violence.
All of this would not be possible if we didn’t have our nine ephors to tell hundreds of millions of us mundanes what freedoms the government allows us to have, because allowing people to get married without permission of the state would cause unnecessary rifts in society, chaos, conflict, strife, and so many other unpleasantries easily solved by official government edicts.
Oh, the freedom to obtain the blessing of the state for a relationship has never been so glorious!
Sweet, beautiful freedom of government licensing! Chant it with me!
“Licensing marriage now, licensing marriage tomorrow, licensing marriage forever”
