IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dozens of people rallied outside the Boy Scouts of America headquarters in suburban Dallas as the group’s board put off a decision on whether to lift a ban on gay members and leaders.

A few children wearing Scout uniforms were scattered among the adults Wednesday in Irving. Some adult volunteers also wore their Scout garb.

One critic of the proposal to lift the ban carried a sign that read: “Don’t invite sin into the camp.”

BSA announced last week it was considering letting troops decide whether to allow gay membership.

The volunteer officers of the Boy Scouts of America’s National Executive Board on Wednesday put off any decision until the group’s national meeting in May. The leaders decided more time is needed to review the complexity of the issue.
