Budget airline EasyJet yesterday offered to fly Pope Benedict XVI to the UK following the recent controversy surrounding his viewpoints on British Equality laws and estimated cost of his visit.
The Sun has caused havoc after publishing a poll yesterday asking whether gay people should be allowed to be cabinet ministers.

Peter Tatchell commends Catholic Bishops in response to the English Catholic Bishops Conference statement (13 April) on child sex abuse and sexual orientation.
"I commend the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales for their intelligent, calm and accurate rejection of a causal link between paedophilia and sexual orientation. Their measured, non-homophobic tone contrasts sharply with the shrill, scapegoating comments of Cardinal Bertone," said human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell of gay human rights group OutRage!
"The Bishops are right to point out that a propensity to child sex abuse is not based on a person's sexual orientation but on a sexual fixation with young people.
"The reputation of the Vatican and the Pope has been badly damaged by recent attempts to blame gays, the media and Jews for the public outcry over the sex crimes of Catholic clergy.
"The response of the English and Welsh Bishops is much more mature and reasoned than the nonsense that has been coming out of the Vatican in the last few weeks," said Mr Tatchell.
