A rally near Boy Scouts of America headquarters in suburban Dallas has given supporters of keeping a ban on gay members a chance to pray for traditional values.

The rally Wednesday came after national group leaders delayed until May a decision on letting troops decide whether to allow gay membership.

Police say about 150 people attended the rally sponsored by the group Texas Values. Organizers say about twice as many individuals took part.

Participants sang "God Bless America" and recited the Pledge of Allegiance. One sign in the crowd said "Who sets the agenda for BSA? A century of PROVEN TRADITION or a decade of political pressure."

Volunteer officers of the BSA's National Executive Board sought more time to review the issues.
