MLB Umpires flock to Pastor Dean to be baptized
Pastor Dean, as folks around baseball know him, is the leader of Calling for Christ, a nonprofit ministry that for the past 11 years has tried to ease the anguish of major league and minor league umpires by keeping them close to God. Esskew is 48 and enormous, with a booming, smoky drawl and his own cologne-scented weather.

Now he flies and drives between ballparks all summer to hold informal late-night Bible groups at sports bars after games. He spends about 20 weeks ...

Nat, I think it was to illustrate a point and, as it was not in mixed company, it was probably effective. I just heard a pastor on the radio make the following comment: he had seen a girl keep pulling her top down (which was too short and which was obviously designed as such) to which he made the comment...if God wanted us to look at your belly, He would have put it on your face.
