You write about me in the most negative, misleading and distorted manner possible, and have done so for in excess of a decade.
What about other people’s claims? How is it that you are not writing about them, save very infrequently, or in anything like the same abusive fashion?
When somebody confines entire websites, blogs and probably dozens of Facebook groups to attacking just one person over a period of more than ten years that, by any definition is indubitably obsessive. There is nothing “unChristian” in what I have written. What you are doing, and have done over many years, however, is unChristian.
The lies in that post are inexcusable. First, my primary website (not counting the site dedicated to my organisation, the Vampire Studies Association [https://vampirestudies.org/], which will be undergoing some major redevelopment) is Vamped (https://vamped.org/), a general interest vampire site. Mr. Manchester has occasionally featured (https://vamped.org/tag/sean-manchester/), primarily in context with his "investigation" of the Highgate Vampire case, but he is not the website's primary topic.
As to blogs, I've created a handful over the years—none dedicated to a single person. This blog, for instance, focused on the Highgate Vampire case and the personalities involved. I previously wrote Diary of an Amateur Vampirologist (http://doaav.blogspot.com/), which later morphed to The Vampirologist (http://thevampirologist.blogspot.com/) before landing on a Wordpress version of the blog (https://thevampirologist.wordpress.com/).
In what I can only class as yet another case of psychological projection gone wild, it's Mr. Manchester who has actually created blogs about other people; specifically his nemesis, David Farrant (e.g. David Farrant Obituary, https://davidfarrantobituary.blogspot.com/), Kevin Chesham (e.g. Kevin Chesham Q & A, https://kev-chesham.blogspot.com/), various perceived enemies (Antipathetic Voices, http://antipatheticvoices.blogspot.com/) and, yes, even yours truly (Hoggwatch, http://hoggwatch.blogspot.co.uk/ [site discontinued]). Sidenote: Mr. Manchester launched that blog about me under a fake identity, before revealing himself to be the true author when he issued a copyright claim against me for posting a link to it (!) on Facebook.
I think it goes without saying that Mr. Manchester's remarks on the practice of my faith are more than a little hypocritical, but I accept the notion that my remarks can't always be considered Christ-like. The difference, of course, is that I acknowledge that; Mr. Manchester remains unrepentant. And he's a "bishop" (as he likes to keep reminding us).
