Grenadian church leaders have launched a protest against plans to stage a pair of Christmas Eve concerts featuring several leading Jamaican artistes because they feel that they would profane the sanctity of the holiday.

In a statement, the Conference of Churches claimed that the island's Christian heritage was under attack.

The concerts will feature popular Jamaican artistes Beenie Man, Mr Vegas, Assassin, Jahvinci as well as Barbadian entertainers.

"Our heritage is under attack by mega-shows such as the one advertised for Christmas Eve in the National Stadium," said the church leaders in an online wire story.

"It is regrettable that shows by foreign artistes who promote a culture contrary to our Christian values are held on what is supposed to be a "silent night" and a "holy night" the statement said.

Concerns have been also raised in many quarters here as well about vulgar and violent lyrics in the songs by Jamaican artistes.
