shirtless Mormon missionaries

I really only have one thing to say about this article.
The creator of a calendar that featured shirtless Mormon missionaries was excommunicated Sunday after a disciplinary meeting with local church leaders in Las Vegas.

Chad Hardy said he bears no ill will toward the council of elders from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

"I felt like I spoke my truth," the 31-year-old entertainment entrepreneur said. "Bottom-line, they still felt the calendar is inappropriate and not the image that the church wants to have."
Exactly what kind of truth, beyond "I like making money and I think this is a way to do that," were you speaking? Please, don't give the tired I want people to know what they're really like line.


  1. the same kind of truth the marriotts live in selling porn in their hotel rooms - but at least they pay their 10% on it!

  2. Probably, but I wouldn't classify this as "porn." I mean, there's nothing there (presumably - I haven't seen the calendar) that you wouldn't see at the beach or the pool.

    I think it's funny that the maker of the calendar was excommunicated from the LDS Church, but the guys who participated weren't.
