Boy Scouts delay decision on gays

The Boy Scouts of America on Wednesday delayed a decision on whether to allow gays to join the outdoors organization, saying it needed more time due to the "complexity" of the issue. The Boy Scouts, a 103-year-old institution separate from the Girl Scouts of the USA, said a vote on whether to end a ban on openly gay members and adult leaders would not take place until an annual national meeting in May. The Scouts' executive board had met Wednesday to discuss the issue, leading to speculation it might vote to reverse its policy.
