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.
The Government will not push through proposals that churches argue would restrict their ability to deny jobs to gay people and transsexuals, Equality Minister Harriet Harman has confirmed.
Following Catholic Care’s application to only offer their adoption services to those who are heterosexual being rejected; National charity Barnados has come out in support of the decision made by the Human Rights Commission to dismiss the appeal saying it’s about “love.”
Leeds-based Catholic Care applied on religious grounds to be allowed to offer its adoption-support services to heterosexual prospective parents only but it was later rejected as such discrimination breached the European Convention on Human Rights.
Martin Narey, Barnardo’s chief executive, said about the decision: “For an Agency to have been allowed to refuse potential adoptors simply because of their sexual orientation would have severely diminished securing the best future for many children, therefore Barnardo’s welcomes this decision.
“Adoption can transform a child’s life, and success rests on selecting, for each child, the very best parents in terms of the love and stability they can provide. In most adoptions, the best adoptive parents happen to be heterosexual, however sometimes the best possible parents happen to be gay.
All that matters is what is best for the child.”
