The United States has restricted Ugandan officials’ access to visas after the African nation approved an anti-LGBTQ law that was denounced by several nations and the UN, the U.S. State Department announced on Friday.

While Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated last month that the government would examine imposing visa restrictions on Ugandan officials, U.S. President Joe Biden had previously threatened funding cuts and other sanctions.

The State Department stated in a statement on Friday that it would hold accountable anybody who violated human rights in Uganda, “including those of LGBTQI+ persons.” The statement avoided naming any individuals or even specifying how many officials would be subject to the visa ban. Read More

Romans 1:18-32:

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them;  for God hath showed it unto them.   20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead;  so that they are without excuse:  21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful;  but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.   22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.   24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.   Amen.   26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections:  for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another;  men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.  

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness;  full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity;  whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
