    He speaks like that because one of his family members growing up had a hearing and speech problem. So he exaggerates his speech in because that is how he grew up so that, the family member could understand him - not buying this.

    Lett speaks 'like that' at every public talk he gives - his family member with hearing and speech problems isn't always in attendance, needing exaggerated speech to understand.

    I read somewhere (on this site I think) many moons ago that he has a stuttering problem, and one of the suggested therapies for overcoming it is to exaggerate one's facial gestures while speaking - this is much more believable.

    Are there any former bethelites on this forum who could confirm Lett has a stuttering problem?

    I never said that, his family member was in the audience for every talk. But most people when they learn a habit as a young person especially when speaking or was doing something for a long time, it will stick with them. That is how accents are formed because you learn to speak with that so it is hard to get rid of it.

    It was a propalactic entanglement with fallopian tubes while his parents were in the throes of copulatic madness.

    The result: An elastic maxillary locomotion curiously juxtaposed prognathically , manifesting itself in hypnotically captivating facial contortions , calculated to outshine even the most loquacious among primates !

    Only two reasons I can think of.

    Ashton Kutcher is calling the shots behind the scenes...

    ...or despite everything, Lett is still the best they've got.

    More like a freaky-ass mashup of Mr. Rogers and Pinhead.

    EDIT: Somebody photoshop that.

    Brother Lett's recent talk " Join the Jehovah's Witnesses and get a piece of tail "

    raised a few eyebrows.

    There's a very close relative of his on reddit and he says none of these theories about him( Tourette, stutter etc) are true - that he's a nice guy with a normal iQ who certainly didn't used to talk like that at home. All I can think of is it's his "public" style of talking.

    Apparently the faithfull love him. He's the most popular which is why they give him the difficult ( money grabbing) talks.

    Edit: definitely a forest Gump fan.

    M. Applewhite leader of the Heaven's gate cult. Mr. Applewhite was able to stare and talk for a long time without blinking his eyes. Lett and Applewhite personalities is uncanny, both strange men.I would love to face Lett and tell him, you are so full of sh---t, you are disgusting....

    That last broadcast Lett looked truly demented, more so than ever.
