Hot Mormon Muffins Calendar Causes Controversy
Just because they’re Mormons doesn’t mean they’re not MILFs. According to the Associated Press, a new calendar is causing quite a stir in Salt Lake City, Utah. The “Hot Mormon Muffins: A Taste of Motherhood” calendar features 12 mothers of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in vintage pinup picture poses. Each month also has a muffin recipe. Hilarious!
It’s a companion piece to “Men on a Mission,” the three-year series of calendars that featured 12 male shirtless church missionaries. The pecs caused another ruckus; the calendar’s creator, Las Vegas entrepreneur Chad Hardy, had to give up his membership in the church and his diploma from the church-owned Brigham Young University.
Hardy said the projects are designed to shake up stereotypes that paint Mormons as hyper-conservative and mothers in particular as homemakers from another era. “For Mormons, the most holy calling next to missionary work is motherhood,” he said. “But they’re not all the subservient housewives that people think they are.”
Miss May and tattooed cover model Tami Roberts wants to prove that you can abide by Mormon values, but also break the stereotype and teach your kids to be open-minded. “I want them to be open, accepting of other people, know that everybody is not the same and that it’s OK to make your own choices,” she said.
Everybody needs to lighten up. Why do religion and a sense of humor have to be mutually exclusive?
