Here is an amusing but sad story. Apparently Mormon men can't be depicted as handsome, sexy guys, even in relatively modest attire.
According to the Associated Press, Chris Hardy was summoned to a church disciplinary hearing because of his "conduct unbecoming of a member of the church." His crime? He asked a dozen of the LDS church's brightest and best, young men returning from their missions overseas, to pose for a calendar. The pictures are quite nice, of young men in their prime, shirtless but not indecent at all. It's hard to imagine how anybody could object to these tasteful pictures. Moreover, Hardy's goal was laudable: To portray Mormon missionaries as regular, attractive guys.
Religion and religious institutions such as the LDS are having trouble fighting against rational thought and the discoveries of modern science. When they object to trivial "infractions" like a tasteful male calendar, they just look silly. Instead of focusing on their main message, they become sitting ducks for jokes and ridicule. Why don't these elders just tape a "kick me" sign to their backs?
