(CNN) — The Southern Baptist Convention on Wednesday expressed its “continued opposition to and disappointment” in the decision by the Boy Scouts of America to permit gay youth members, the group said in a tweet.

The convention — which has a national network of 45,000 churches and church-type missions — passed a resolution at its annual meeting in Houston, Texas.

While the resolution doesn’t ask its members to leave the scouts, the resolution “affirms the right of all families and churches prayerfully to assess their continued relationship with the BSA, expressing our support for those churches and families that as a matter of conscience can no longer be part of the Scouting family.”
