News about the respected Archbishop was trending on Social media on Sunday that he has been barred from entering the U.S by the Department of State.
According to the reports widely said to emanate from a USTODAY-TV website, the State Department is said to have condemned the founder of Action Chapel International, who has rebuked gay marriage and refused to officiate a gay marriage.
The Archbishop is said to have said gay marriage is "a sin against Bible teachings".
