Boy Scouts Deliver Pizza to Utah Gay Couples Waiting for Marriage Licenses

boy scouts gay pizza utahHere’s a story to warm even the Grinchiest of  hearts on this fine Christmas Eve day:

Over the weekend a troupe of Boy Scouts in Utah delivered pizza to hundreds of gay couples who were waiting in a long line to get their marriage licenses at a county clerk’s office in Salt Lake City. The boys (some clad in rainbow scaves!) also handed out slices to couples waiting in the hallways and county workers who had skipped lunch to stay around to process the licenses.

Photos of the act of goodwill were posted on Twitter and have since made their way around the web. Let’s hope they caught the eye of some of the BSA leadership (and Phil Robertson!), because this is what being a good scout is all about. Someone get these boys an “I’m Awesome” badge pronto!
