ST. GEORGE'S — Church leaders in the Caribbean nation of Grenada are complaining about a Christmas Eve concert by reggae acts with names like Assassin and Mr. Killa.

They say it's an affront to the island's Christian heritage.

The Grenada Conference of Churches has condemned a government decision to allow an event promoter to host the Dec. 24 show featuring various stars of Jamaican “dancehall” — a rap-reggae music hybrid that often has raunchy, violent themes.

The group's statement said it was regrettable the government is allowing acts that promote “a culture contrary to our Christian values” on a night holy to Christians.
