Ham's presentation in the school's Constitution Hall was objectionable to a campus LGBT group, which put heavy pressure on the UCO Student Association (UCOSA) and university officials to cancel the March 5 speaking engagement. In his proposed talk at UCO, Ham would have discussed the two different worldviews and their starting points when interpreting scientific evidence, as he did in his evolution/creation debate with Bill Nye "The Science Guy" four years ago.
Ham noted: "Free speech in America is under increasing attack by some very intolerant people. In this case of discrimination, I find it highly ironic that after being booked to speak in the school's Constitution Hall, our constitutional right to free speech and the free exercise of religion, guaranteed under the First Amendment, have been denied."
Ham added: "A small but vocal group on campus put up a fuss about my talk and the university caved in, tearing up the contract and contradicting its policies of promoting 'free inquiry' and 'inclusiveness' on campus."
