SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Controversy has arisen over a risque calendar featuring female members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
A calendar is being released for 2010, featuring “Hot Mormon Muffins”, 12 different Mormon mothers in questionable poses.
The creator, Chad Hardy, originally created “Men on a Mission” calendars, which displayed attractive male missionaries in their signature white shirts.
However, the controversy finally reached a head last year, when he lost both his church membership as well as his college diploma from church-owned Brigham Young University.
Hardy decided to move on to challenging the idea of what a stereotypical modern Mormon mother should be. “For Mormons, the most holy calling next to missionary work is motherhood,” said Hardy. “But they’re not all the subservient housewives that people think they are.”
The mothers in the calendar range in age from 26 to 53, and are stay-at-home moms, students and even dance instructors. One is a former Miss Utah and another is a breast cancer survivor.
Tami Roberts, Miss May, is a mother-of-three waitress, who confesses to having a few tattoos. After hearing about the Church’s discipline of Hardy, she decided to sign up for his women’s calendar.
She said of raising her daughters with Mormon values, “I also 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.”
Church spokeswoman Kim Farah declined to comment on the new calendar.

the Church has nothing to do with any of this pics. so do not relate any of this pic to memeber of church. like peaople sey evry one can make ther own choices and do ass they want it dont matter what religion you are
Gotta love those hot buttered Mormon muffins !!
What, only Catholics and Jews get to be made fun of? How about a "What's under that potato sack" Islamic calendar? People need to lighten up about whatever fairy tale they believe in.
Sheesh, I've sure seen a lot better looking Mormon women than those on the calendar. Woof woof!
Tempset in a tea pot. I recall calanders of Catholic Nuns frollicing in Retory gardens in the 70's. No biggie. But this stuff sure gives religious zelots of all faiths gas.
I think the women had good intentions to try and break the stereotypes of their church. It's getting attention, but I don't think it's going to get the attention they want.
If these men and women need to be vulgar then they are out of line with anything wholesome and good no matter what religion or non religion they are.
Take a break. Have a break and a drink – you F*ck
It was once said on one of our church lessons that being happy and joyful is good but breaking laws like posing inappropriate way that is for a public view is WRONG, it does not make you happy it does not make you joyful, it was for FUN. And again the church said that, we should never EVER lower our standards! So I think posing like this on a calendar is wrong. there are a lot of other ways to break the stereotype of our church.
