He got Creation Museum, Ark built in Kentucky, but he canít speak on Oklahoma campus
Kentucky Herald Leader ^ | 02/14/2018 | GREG KOCHER

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 that marriage is between one man and one woman.

“I am not the first person to be personally attacked by a very vocal group on campus that has little tolerance for opposing viewpoints,” Duvall said in a written statement, referring to some Ham opponents.

Ham was to give a lecture titled “Genesis and the State of the Culture” followed by a question-and-answer session. Ham told the Oklahoman he was “shocked” the invitation was rescinded in Oklahoma, “which is considered to be in the Bible Belt area. I think it’s going to be eye-opening to a lot of people.”

In his own blog, Ham pointed out that opponents were able to shut down his campus visit, “yet the school has sponsored and given university funding toward a Drag Queen show.” Furthermore, he said, a professor who opposed his visit ‘also sponsors a safe sex carnival,’ which includes explicit, so-called learning games (that as a Christian I would describe as sexually perverse). Apparently, these events are acceptable on campus, but having a Christian come and speak is not.”

Instead, Ham is now scheduled to speak March 5 at Fairview Baptist Church near the university as a guest of pastor Paul Blair.

There needs to be a court case filed, does an individuals belief in LGBT legally supersede and individuals belief in God? Both are individual beliefs, yet society, and this college are placing a preference on one over the other.

Now you know who is open minded. Now you can filter their bleats, comments, analysis, hopes and dreams as being produced by blind prejudiced reasoning.

Because it was Adam and Steve that God created in the garden to be fruitful and multiply. Then Eve and Genevieve got their chance soon after—and the rest is heresay or make that heresy. Some people just simply choose hell as an appropriate destination..

Oklahoma is a solidly red state. But our metropolitan areas (Tulsa and Oklahoma City) have been infested and polluted by socialists fleeing the People's Republic of Kalifornia. The "University" in question is in Edmund, right next to Oklahoma City.

I truly loathe kalifornians, for all the aforementioned reasons.

It’s the complete statement, not just a pull-quote.

More like a self congratulatory statement instead.

There is a progressive movement to suppress truth and this is just part of it. Religion stands in their way so it must be suppressed. Sorry progressives but your movement will fail. You can take God out of schools, out of public places and out of government but you cannot take God out of the hearts of believers.

Queer Quiz # 1: Who invented the 1st rainbow and why.

Answer 1a: God created the first rainbow after the flood in Noah's time. When you see a rainbow, it is a sign of God's promise to all mankind that He will never again destroy the earth by flood.

These colors do NOT hang over a queer clubhouse.

Thanks SeekAndFind.

As an Oklahoman, I see my state has budget problem. As a retired veteran I served to protect the 2nd amendment. Since Edmond wants to practice censorship I propose all state and federal funding be withheld form this cesspool.
