In the increasingly polarized battle for marriage equality, we’ve been waiting breathlessly for the most important political voice of our time to rise up and speak her truth: Beyonce, a singer, occasional taxi driver and grown-ass-woman who is also the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court of Our Dreams.
