    The president and founder of Kentucky’s Creation Museum in Petersburg and the Ark Encounter in Williamstown has been dropped as a speaker at the University of Central Oklahoma after a LGBT group objected. Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, had been scheduled to speak March 5 at the public university in Edmond, Okla. Stockton Duvall, student body president at the university, took responsibility for the decision to rescind Ham’s invitation after learning of the opposition to his visit. Duvall told The Oklahoman newspaper that a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning group opposed Ham’s visit because of his view...

Ken Ham is the Founder and CEO of Answers in Genesis and the creator of the amazing Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky. He is also a leader in the conservative evangelical community, where his work focuses on Biblical creationism and Christian apologetics. He and his team recently made the decision to use the rainbow as part of the decoration in their Ark Encounter Christmas celebration.

    <p>WILLIAMSTOWN - No one teaching at Williams College is safe from public humiliation these days - not Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Louise Gluck, not veterans of the world-renowned math department, nor the college president himself.</p> <p>In the last month, the close bond between Williams professors and students - a point of pride at this tiny, elite college in the Berkshires - has been ruptured by a new Web site where students are now anonymously critiquing their professors for classmates to see.</p>
