Friday, September 19, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: The head of the Roman Catholic Church in Belize, Bishop Dorrick Wright has spoken out against a planned concert this weekend by Jamaican artist Alkaline, whose real name is Earlan Bartley.

“As the Bishop of Belize, I strongly oppose this event, which represents a serious error in judgment on the part of the Administration of Sacred Heart in allowing it to take place on their campus.”

The concert is being promoted for Saturday night at the Sacred Heart auditorium in San Ignacio town.

The scathing rebuke of the planned concert, according to a statement from the Roman Catholic Bishop “represents a departure from everything we in the Church hold as good, wholesome and sacred.”

It goes on to say that “Sacred Heart College must not promote such rank hedonism.”

Bishop Wright goes on to call on parents to forbid their children from attending the event.

“This artist’s performance will certainly impact your children’s innocence and spiritual wholeness in a very negative way,” says the Bishop’s statement.

The 20 year old Jamaican artist has run into problems in other Caribbean countries for his on-stage performances and in some cases has been banned from performing in some places.
