Perhaps Barker's burned too many bridges with his callous, withering insults and savage put-downs of everyone who dares to disagree with him. That kind of amoral, antagonistic, downright cruel behavior doesn't win you any friends. Shakespeare would have written of Barker's disagreeability and foul nature, but it was thought, and rightly so, that none would believe such a tale of evil. Satan himself recoils at the thought of welcoming him to hell...

Maybe that's why.
