I don't know why some preachers have an affectation.

It's to prove to you that they deserve your kids' college fund.
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

The way they talk signifies they are the real McCoy.  It's not just like a Southern accent.  It's an accent all of it's own.  I call it a Pentecostal accent.  Southern accents are not so prevalent anymore as the country has become more mobile, but auto mechanics in Southern towns have cultivated a dialect of their own.  I call it a Nascar accent.  Southern grocery clerks and shoe salesmen don't use the Nascar accent.  Sometimes it's clearly southern, but that's becoming less of the norm.

Growing up in a black southern Methodist church I know exactly what you're talking about.

I can't believe people in that guy's congregation don't get at least a little bit bored with his redundant cadence.
