WESTERN BUREAU:

Deejay Bounty Killer says he is throwing his full support behind the Church's anti-homosexuality stance and its objection to the repealing of the buggery act.

Bounty Killer made his comments during an interview with THE STAR shortly after his performance at Reggae Sumfest's Dancehall Night on Thursday, during which he used the opportunity to reiterate his disapproval of the homosexual lifestyle, even if he would be barred from future shows.

"Some people always have this mind-frame about time and place. I don't know if I might make it to see tomorrow. From it come to mind, I speak it. That is how I operate. I am not going to sit down and wish and tomorrow I never get to say it. Everybody know the situation at hand and it is either you are with it (homosexuality) or you are against it. And we know the situation in Jamaica about what is going on, and I am backing the Church," Bounty said.

He added; "In dancehall you have people who are righteous, people who are conscious, people who unconscious, people who say freakiness, people who uphold straightness. If you are young and you are listening dancehall, you are wondering what dancehall is all about, because dancehall has no stance again," he added.

To solidify his point, Bounty also made reference to upcoming dancehall artiste Alkaline, who is noted for a song in which he refers to women as 'devils and John Crow'.

"You hear Alkaline a say gyal fi tun inna John Crow; I wonder if him know what a John Crow is. You can't compare a woman wid a John Crow. And if you are encouraging things that you don't uphold, you are using the people; you are prostituting us," he said.
