Boy Scouts Delivering Pizza To Utah’s County Clerks Who Skipped Their Lunches To Process Gay Marriages Will Make Your Day

A picture tweeted by @MattLyonSLC, shows boy scouts in Salt Lake City wearing rainbow kerchiefs, delivering pizza to county workers who are skipping their lunch break to keep serving the hundreds of gay couples lining up around the block for marriage licenses.

In another tweeted photo by @BjaminWood, the Scouts handed out pizzas to couples waiting in line to get their marriage licenses:

Earlier today, U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby — who last week issued a controversial ruling allowing same-sex marriages — denied the state’s request for a stay.

State attorneys had argued before U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby that same-sex couples who marry in Utah would be irreparably harmed if the state’s continuing efforts to overturn the judge’s ruling succeed and those marriages are later invalidated.

Not all county clerks were issuing marriage licenses to gay couples on Monday. In Utah County, the clerk’s office turned away at least three couples, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Utah County Clerk Bryan E. Thompson told The Salt Lake Tribune he would wait to see how the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled on Shelby’s decision before deciding how to proceed.

    Why are these people going to appeal this ruling when it is to plain to see that banning gay marriage is unconstitutional? Being in denial of that simple fact makes me question your sanity and your intelligence.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
