Because he is an embarrassment.  Think of it this way.  Someone  comes into 
the library from our fundamentalist neighbors 2 miles down the road  with an 
old copy of one of his books and begins to ask why we, being normally  rational 
if somewhat eccentric people, believe x and y.  We are placed in  the position 
of having to explain that while we find the man rather  entertaining, no one 
except the LCC Bishop who runs the computers still takes  anything he says 
seriously.  (And the last time he spoke at the Milwaukee  Lodge I went to hear 
him for old time's sake as for all my kidding he is a  friend and my wife was 
utterly horrified at the hash Leadbeater made of history,  Christianity, the 
poor Egyptians and everything else he touched on.  And I  had to try to explain 
to her that we found the stuff just as bad as she did only  we were stuck with 
This really happened when I hung around Olcott years ago and I'm sure it  
still does.
Leadbeater is an embarrassment.  Not as big an embarrassment as Annie  Besant 
embracing Fascism (we can have a lot of fun with that!) but an  embarrassment 
none the less.  
And we don't have to go into pedophelia on top of it.
We have to laugh at him to keep from crying.
