article imageFour-year-old preacher causes controversy following YouTube video

Grenada - A four-year-old toddler is YouTube's latest sensation, after a video of him imitating his preacher father was uploaded to the video-sharing community.
Kanon Tipton started preaching when he was just 21 months old, and continues to do so at his family's Pentecostal church in Mississippi.
Tipton's initial video drew over 4 million hits on YouTube, and while it has been praised by many, it has also been the subject of heavy criticism.
One YouTube user said: "Brainwashed at 4 years old, the boy's never even lived how does he know anything? Social Services need to save this kid."
Meanwhile, Tipton's dad is in full support of his son: "I believe it's a phenomenon. I feel like the hand of God is on him in a very special way but he is the third generation of preachers so it's in his blood."
