Mormons Exposed: It’s (Hopefully) Not What You Think
When shirts come off, things get controversial. At least if you’re Mormon. In that case, the 2010 installment of the Men on a Mission calendar is sure to get some magic underwear in a bunch.
And you thought from Mark’s post about the Hot Mormon Muffins calendar, that the ladies get to have all the fun.
According to the calendar’s web site, this year’s cover is inspired by artist Arnold Friberg and his rendition of the Book of Mormon story “Captain Moroni and the Title of Liberty”. I admittedly am not the world’s expert on Mormonism, but Captain Moroni sounds like he would fit nicely into Scientology’s cast of characters, like Xenu, the dictator of the Galactic Confederacy.
Should you care to learn about where these beefcakes have been proselytizing the word of Joseph Smith and the golden plates in his magical hat, you can check out the Meet the Missionaries page and learn all about Mr. January through December.
This will be the third installment of the “controversial” calendar, brought to the world by excommunicated Mormon Chad Hardy, who claims he was thrown out of the church as an attempt to silence him.
I’m still trying to wrap my brain around this. Somehow the Mormons can mobilize to help get Prop 8 passed in California, but can’t keep one member of the church from putting this shirtless calendar out members from ripping off their shirts for this annual calendar?
