JAMAICA Labour Party (JLP) candidate for West Portland, Daryl Vaz, did not mince words as he made it clear that he did not support the views of Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller, who suggested that the buggery law should be reviewed.
Simpson Miller, who was responding to a question during Tuesday's national leadership debate, also said she would judge her cabinet on merit and not on their sexual preference.
However, Vaz, who was addressing party supporters at a mass meeting in Annotto Bay, St Mary last night, said he was prepared to make his stance public even before the debate reaches Parliament.
"Since I am going back to Parliament I am going to talk about it and I don't want to be taken out of context," he said.
"People of Portland ask me to tell you say we don't buy pool in a cash pot and since it is going to be a debate in Parliament I am going to say God created Adam and Eve and not Adam and Steve," he said.
