Fr. Harcourt Blackett Ignores Cry from Man Alleging ABUSE by Fellow Catholic Priest

Harcourt Vincent Blackett

Decisions we make are influenced by a moral compass. The degree a society is able to align to the collective beliefs and perspectives of citizens is a work-in-progress exercise. No absolutes, many shades of grey. Enlightened citizens understand we must unapologetically participate in our system of governance to ensure civil society actors are sufficiently aligned to collective values. The challenge oftentimes is that issues of morality are not black and white. 

For many Barbadians- dare we say the majority- the Christian Church represents the last bastion of what defines old fashion traditional values. It is place many believers seek refuge. It is a place a believer should not expect to be abused physically or emotionally. Physical and emotional abuse should be viewed through a black or white lens.

The blogmaster received several communications from a man residing in Europe who alleged he was abused by a catholic priest now deceased by the name of Aidan Dean, a Canadian who presided in Barbados during the 70s. The victim in his search to find emotional closure tried to initiate an investigation in 2017 to discover if other young men had been similarly abused in Barbados. Fr. Andy of St. Dominic’s referred him to Fr. Harcourt Blackett. The victim spoke to Fr. Harcourt on the phone, however, he reported Fr. Harcourt’ s attitude was :- “ yes some people still alive who will remember him [Aidan Dean] but don’t spoil the memories and image that these people may hold about this person. Brush, dirt, carpet”.

Emails sent to Fr. Harcourt and Charles Dominique were subsequently forwarded in 2018 to bishopaccountability.org because Fr. Harcourt ignored the cry for assistance from the victim. bishopaccountability.org is a website dedicated to victims and families of victims of abuse by the catholic church. The blogmaster can only speculate why the matter was not pursued by that entity.

A snippet of a letter received by the victim from an aging Dominican in London. It explains why Fr Aidan was relieved of his post in Barbados and sent back to England.

I am a 61 years old man living in Northern Ireland. As a boy I spent a period of my life living near to the Dominican priory … England. At that time a friendship was formed with Fr Aidan Dean.  I was lonely and vulnerable.  Fr Aidan was a close family member who ate at our table at home and was held in great esteem by my parents.

Fr. Aidan gifted to me money, a Toshiba radio cassette player and other things and sexually abused me – I am still haunted by his nudity, physical encounters. his breath his lips etc. He is dead no. What happened shaped my life – kept contact with me through university and performed my marriage ceremony.

Extract from an email sent by the victim to Fr. Harcourt Blackett, Charles Dominic and bishopaccountability.org.

As a result of the abuse the victim underwent a psychiatric evaluation and ongoing therapy is recommended. The client reported extensive and repeated sexual abuse by Father Aidan Dean between the ages of seventeen and nineteen. The client reported that the abuse took place in the priest’s bedroom in ‘Hawksyard Priory,’ off …. The client recalls being touched, fondled, and kissed and regularly experiencing penetrative sexual abuse by Father Aidan Dean. The client recalls the priest telling him he loved him, giving him gifts, and treating him in a way that made him feel special.

Extract from the Psychiatric Evaluation Report to determine the therapeutic needs of the victim.

The blogmaster’s hope is that those with answers meet with the victim to facilitate closure to the matter. Newly installed Bishop Neil Scantlebury should move with haste to attend to the disturbing accusation. One does not expect a priest of the calibre of Monsignor Vincent Harcourt Blackett to show the level of insensitivity described by the victim. The blogmaster notes Fr. Blackett recently accepted an engagement in St. Vincent. The blogmaster also notes a communication sent by the victim to Barbados Today on Monday, 5 December 2016, 21:22 was ignored.

  • it is indeed an incredibly corrupt and dangerous organization….a criminal syndicate that has survived for far too long and must be removed out of people’s lives eventually..//the lies that has damaged irrevocably the minds of the fools who follow them and got them spewing religious shit everywhere must be neutralized..

    “The highest truth has to be that all the authorities in the Catholic Church, throughout the world, all those who’ve come before, all those who will come in the future MUST shoulder the collective responsibility of the religious crimes inflicted on humanity for these 2000 years.

    this mispreception that regardless of level of offenses this deeply corrupt criminal organization deserves conservation.”

  • David,

    Is that a back-handed compliment?🤔

    I am reading The Royal Weeeeee’s comments and I think I should have been rather more forceful in my inquiry as to whether a strong statement of condemnation of the scandalous behaviour and cover up of the Roman Catholic hierarchy at the highest levels has ever been issued by Blackett.

    These horrendous crimes were not committed by a few bad apples in a land and time far far away. AND the cover up was even worse than the initial crime, considering that it seems to have been an official policy of the Vatican.

    Many victims and perpetrators are still alive. Also, it seems as though there is a lingering resistance to admitting, apologising and offering “restitution” for the inspeakable damage done to the most vulnerable in our midst.

    Many suicides have resulted from the actions of the Vatican, some of them quite recently. Many lives have been shattered beyond repair.

    The Anglican Church was guilty of engaging in slavery and other colonial horrors. Then they made some amends here in Barbados by educating the descendants of enslaved.

    What has the Roman Catholic Church done as penance? Or, what IS it doing, I should say, considering the magnitude of the crimes it committed against humanity and the timeframe in which they occurrred.

    Harcourt should be paying some attention to these things.

    The moral vacuum was not left by the disestablishment of the Church. It was more as a result of people growing bold enough to be able to speak aloud about the church leaders’ hypocrisy.

    I hear we had a bishop who used to “bless” the young woman at “my” church with more than a touch on the head. He is still alive.

    The “do as I say and not as I do” and yet still “holier than thou” attitude does not play well in modern society.

    @David, @Donna and all . If we are going to discuss an issue and throw indictments at people then the expectation is that we basically attempt to be FAIR and RATIONAL .

    We cannot get on our soap box and talk all this ‘indignation’ and lambaste Blackette (in this case) exactly as we are complaining he effectively treated this gentlemen.
    That’s …to repeat, HYPOCRISY.

    RESET.

    @David, YOU SAID “the thesis of the blog, the same moral indignation Fr. Harcourt espoused on the voicenote about Rihanna’s elevation to national hero, he should have reacted similarly to the request from the alleged party.”

    Brother you are an intelligent and educated man – as ALL the regulars here. However, for some UNKNOWN reason a cohort of those educated folk BLUNTLY refused to address the absolute ILLOGIC of that thesis as @Verona did.

    How and why is Blackette’s strong condemnation of Rhianna’s new status ANY practical relationship to his attitude to the serious and sordid matter of a then boy’s sexual assault by his trusted mentor who was a priest in the RC church???

    David that is ABSURD reasoning!

    As the blogger said and I paraphrase her below:

    ***”We all ’empathize with this alleged victim’ but why has the blogmaster chosen this means to communicate this alleged abuse.”****

    It’s worth repeating (for my fellow bloggers who seem to base reason on THEIR agreement of an opinion rather than the FACTS before them): opposing the unjust nature of the attack on Blackette does NOT MEAN one condones Blackette’s behaviour/lack of empathy nor dismisses the pain and grave suffering of a sexual abuse survivor. And it ABSOLUTLEY does not mean one absolves the Monsignor from the evil acts of his church.

    I do not have any affinity for the RC church … it is crooked and evil (many of those who inhabit it). Blackette is but one such acolyte and may be as debased as many of his colleagues but everyone of them deserves fairness of judgement STILL. If guilty of a valid indictment then let the punishment be swift and harsh.

    But if as the blogger further asked ***”What is the purpose of this article? To evoke feelings of disdain towards Fr. Blackett and the Catholic Fraternity? To have the matter judged in the Court of Public Opinion?”****!

    Then that’s wrong!

    Was your piece intended .to 1) open any path for others to address their abuse, 2) create an avenue for this victim specifically to heal or 3) shine a spotlight on any such possible abuse in scouting, cadets, sports and all the other areas here in Bim where known homosexuals (and lesbians) were respected coaches, teachers and leaders???

    Apparently not … this article focused on Blackette’s lack of christian empathy on a single case … WHY!

    Blogging by it’s nature of ‘citizen journalism’ readily provides the opportunity to get “both sides of the coin without any insinuations and does let the readers draw our own conclusions” and that is what the counterpoint from @Verona and mine above attempts to do simply.

    I gone.

    Does anybody thinks that the FBI cares about any of that when investigating conspiracy, racketeering etc.

    That Harcourt Blackette is a member of a mellenia old crime family should not require us to assume that he is any less or more culpable than any other actor. A standard variable!

    David, if this writer carried you into a California bank about a transaction and it was later found that this transaction which you brought to this writer was fraudulent both persons would be deemed part of a conspiracy to defraud the bank, a federal crime.

    @David, there is absolutely no prolix here.

    The fundamental right and wrong is clear… you were wrong to condemn Blackette on the PREMISS u used. That’s it. That’s what the very first blogger noted and that’s what I am repeating.

    You are wrong to conflate his condemnation of Rhianna’s status with the sordid act of sexual abuse or his reaction to a deep seated, long burning legal mess that spotlights the nastiness of the RCC.

    Tell me bro, had to lauded her appointment would THIS article appear as it is!

    I have not listened to his Rhianna tirade and in the context of this debate I should NOT have to … because apart surely from difference in words and tone I too strongly dismissed her appointment as political posturing ‘demagoguery’.

    But I would never have treated the man as he did and thus I agree Blackette was disgustingly wrong re the response to this gentleman.

    So indeed absolutely no need to be prolix, I simply do not see which see-saw you are riding to reach your strange moral compass … your ‘true north’ locator appears to be located at grid point ‘bias’! 🤦🏾‍♂️

  • David,

    Intelligent people should grow and learn. Rihanna’s style is not mine but I have come to understand that these standards are man made constructs. Primative cultures in certain climates wore little in the clothing line. Others were forced t0 bundle up due to the cold and still others to wrap up due to swirling sand. Clothing standards are CULTURAL and FUNCTIONAL, not moral. It’s like Cuhdear Bajan always says, Bemuda shorts and bare arms are more suitable for our climate, yet they are deemed unsuitable for our government offices. It is only recently that Bajan women stopped wearing stockings to work. Men still sweat in stupid suits at weddings and funerals.

    We need to take a serious look at ourselves.

    I once was a goody two shoes who condemned “cussing” until I realised that these “cuss words” are man made concepts. It’s all in our heads!

    I used to condemn marijuana smoking until I accepted that alcohol is also a drug that can do damage in excess. It is about how much of it we use.

    People need to stop and think about these things.

    And as for our moral compass being broken since disestablishment, if I do something I have told my son not to do I am ALWAYS challenged. I maintain that this is what happened.

    The people had Grown up Stupid Under the Union Jack and Massa’s double standard church was never challenged. As soon as that hold was released, the people’s eyes were opened and they saw that the Church was naked, parading around pretending like the proverbial emperor to be wreathed in gloriously golden robes.

    In other words, church officials demanded of the people that which they themselves had no intention of ever doing.

    We are a people who had a foreign culture imposed upon us. We must find our own way now. There is a cost to that.

    But disestablishment had to happen.

    Param Brahma in Hindu philosophy is the “Supreme Brahman” that which is beyond all descriptions and conceptualisations. It is described as the formless that eternally pervades everything, everywhere in the universe and whatever is beyond.

    The Church of God is the Church of the Body where there is visible presence of God from Head to Toe and you accept that Head to Toes is like a battery that is charged from the source of the universe. When you have low energy you are in a state of a discharged condition and you need to charge it from a big source which is called the Element of Truth, and what is the Truth, the Truth is that God has become part of your existence and others existence and looks like everything, everyone, the earth and the sky. The source is the idea that God alone exists and when you know it you can write it speak it, when you feel it from head to toes you can translate it into Parabrahma consciousness and these are the changes whatever you feel in your arms legs and body activity. All kinds of Knowledge Peace Power Joy Bliss Immortality exist in this consciousness, you are not feeling this body you are feeling the visible presence of God and you keep this purity in you action without speaking about it it is shown through your behaviour not your talking and your are working like a prophet or an angel or you are so great people feel at peace to be with you all the time and feel more Power Knowledge and Peace and feel more and more integration more and more oneness. With Power Knowledge and Peace you have to demonstrate your effect and not to speak that “God has become Me” as nobody can accept it.

    First the ‘carelessness’. …. “Trying to focus on what would make victims whole. It would probably be a good thing if we receive open public apologies from the head of the RC Church in the various islands.”

    So despite clear and unequivocally denunciation by the current Pope himself yet the RC flock need local public apologies !

    “Not surprised by the pushback. Some ‘unholy cows’ are still held sacred”

    I stated TWICE that the RC church or church generally is NOT held as any sacred cow … I spoke of the Vatican Bank scandals … traipsing all the way back to the unholy wars of the Knights Templar (with no prolix but enough of a hint to u smart folks re deep webs of these ‘international mafia’ elite connections).

    Yet you offer that snide remark. Steeupse. But then again, maybe u aren’t as well read in that area as I thought.

    Now generally …. The matter of sexual abuse of this gentleman is important and should be ventilated.

    Based on the above he wants to bring it to public awareness as he has publicized his therapy notes and other private correspondence … that the Blogmaster prepared the public case as he did is the issue.

    I am not defending Blackette nor the church and @David I know you realize that everything is about PR presentation.

    Here several posts were WASTED identifying HOW u did this… the VERY FIRST ONE IN FACT.

    Now brother maybe that was your PR intent so who am I to contradict you … just seems to me that if that energy was used to speak on the possible pervasiveness of such abuse in Bim and some posts were healing tales from others that it would have been MORE productive.

    Well, Phillip was a known Nazi. His and her Germanic roots even encouraged Mountbatten to try to change the name of the House of Windsor back to Saxe Coburg and Gotha to reflect that reality. During both ww1 and ww2 there were movements within the palace in support of Germany. Mountbatten is also cited later as planning a coup against the elected government during her reign.

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Mountbatten was in command of allied forces during WWII in the Pacific of Allied forces, not bad for a Nazi!!

    Philip served at see on British warships, not bad for a Nazi!!

    Anyway, enjoy this clip and upgrade your historical knowledge..

    Her Excellency The Most Honourable Dame Sandra Mason, The President,”

    These ” titles ” seem to be confusing for some.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    One thing that is obvious and I can say without fear of contradiction, the President was one crappy Justice of Appeal and was promoted way beyond her level of competence when she was made GG!!

    I understand she has alot more like this.

    This writer does not misinform this blog. We’ve read around the life of Mountbatten, over years. from birth to his death by an IRA bomb while on his boat at his countryside retreat.

    Instead of being reliant of propaganda which reinforces the established narratives, about everything, which supports your ideals about Whiteness you need to go beyond the surface.

    Try this for starters.

    He reckoned that she was going to utter unspeakable secrets about the royals. However, only circumstantial evidence was ever produced.

    I know about the scandals of the Royal family.

    You must know by now that I like history.

    However, even Princess Margaret never ran around in public exposing her lady parts or as a more frank Jamaican friend of mind used to put it “digging she pu$$y”..

    That’s the difference between Rihanna and any member of the Royal family.

    I really don’t have much use for Princess Di or Prince Andrew or for that matter Prince Charles and the wife.

    However, Fr Blackett’s epithet for Rihanna as “”that red woman” is one that fits her to the ground.

    You represent no prompt for this writer to read historical documents. Real histories, not propaganda.

    A neophyte could not have so quickly responded to your highly misguided assertions. The problem is always to deliver evidence, proof, within the context of a blog.

    For there is always a critical mass of subjects central to what this writer reads.

    As far as the Windsors are concerned we’ve found it impossible to reach a true appreciation of the magnitude of evil thusly represented unless one first understands Mountbatten.

    His whole life is antithetical to what you would have us continue to believe. And in the history of the royals he is not an outlier. Believe it or not!

    And ours are not merely about scandals like you would want to believe but you were the one raising the spectre of morality and your implicit bias to Whiteness. Equating Whiteness with morality.

    How else can a sentient being, a social scientist, understand the present, perceive the future, without firmly being rooted in the past. It is basis for us that knowing, not believing, the past is the only way of seeing the future.

    Of course,, you like (his)story when you really mean those dominant narratives supportive of Whiteness. The truth is another matter entirely. And that is what you had the good sense to appear to concede to on this occasion.

    But still you revert to your original canard. Does capitalism which your people have imposed on the world not sell everything based on sex, the exploitation of women and why should that bar erected by White people preclude Rihanna or anybody else from producing the commercial content for which there is a large market. If you’re so opposed to such artistic productions you must be also against the underlying system which makes it possible, and you are not, never have been, will never be.

  • The question of full frontal nudity being portrayed as a moral deficiency by a roman Catholic priest is unfortunate because in the heart of Roman catholicism, the Sistine chapel, Michaelangelo’s work presents full frontal nudity as worthy of great admiration, as have many other artists. Also, it is believed that Jesus of Nazareth was stripped naked and crucified in his supreme act of self sacrifice. Is there more to the objection by the cleric than a cheap ppolitical attack on the Prime minister? By condemning the response from the church to the well deserved appointment of Rihanna as National Hero, is it an attempt to push the new Roman Catholic bishop into the middle of an ill conceived controversy.

    Nakedness was common the further back in time we go.

    In fact, Adam and Eve once upon a time, walked around naked and no doubt as you know, Adam and Eve are central figures in Christianity.

    “God called out Adam and Eve from hiding and told them the consequences of their sin. He did not stop there but went on to make provision for their sin (Genesis 3:15) and the covering of their nakedness. Genesis 3:21 says “And the LORD God made for Adam and his wife garments of skins and clothed them.””

    How would Michael Anglo address some of the basic tenets of Christianity assuming he was given full artistic license?

    https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis+3&version=KJV

    We wear clothes today because of Adam and Eve’s disobedience and we wear clothes to hide the sin against God which Adam and Eve committed.

    God made provision for us to hide because we know wrong from right.

  • The last scene painted in the Sistine Chapel is the last Judgment.

    https://www.througheternity.com/en/blog/art/nudity-and-controversy-in-the-sistine-chapel.html

    “The Last Judgement, painted from 1535 to 1541, covers the entire altar wall of the Sistine Chapel. It depicts the second coming of Christ on Judgement Day, surrounded by apostles, disciples, saints, martyrs, angels, demons, the saved ascending to paradise and the damned being dragged to hell. It’s an extraordinarily complex and detailed scene, especially given the enormous size of the fresco. Painted twenty-five years after the completion of the Sistine Chapel ceiling, The Last Judgement is the work of the mature Michelangelo, at the peak of his artistic powers.”

    “The work had been commissioned by the Pope, but many Catholics felt that The Last Judgement was inappropriate for a place as sacred as the Pope’s private chapel. The Papal Master of Ceremonies, Biagio da Cesena, deemed the fresco outrageous, and more suitable for public baths or taverns than a chapel. “….it was mostly disgraceful that in so sacred a place there should have been depicted all those nude figures, exposing themselves so shamefully”. Michelangelo responded by making Minos, judge of the underworld, resemble Cesena. It’s an extremely unflattering portrait; Minos/Cesena has the ears of a donkey and a snake biting his genitals. When Cesena complained to the Pope, the Pope reportedly pointed out that his authority did not extend to hell. The painting remained unchanged.”

    “But Cesena was far from the only detractor. The satirist Pietro Aretino, angered when Michelangelo ignored his advice, accused the artist of being “godless” and homosexual – a little hypocritical, given Aretino’s boasts about his own same-sex conquests. The obvious response was to include Aretino in the painting, which Michelangelo promptly did. St Bartholomew, portrayed as a stern old man holding his own flayed skin, bears a striking resemblance to Aretino. Interestingly, the face on the flayed skin of the saint has been interpreted as Michelangelo’s anguished, distorted self-portrait.”

    So, there is a logic to the work of art.
