Hot Mormon Muffins: A Taste of Motherhood is a new calendar featuring 12 Mormon moms in sexy, vintage pinup poses and slightly revealing outfits. Oh, and each month includes a different muffin recipe (I'm actually referring to the baked good)...
The creator of the calendar is Chad Hardy (who also did a three-year series of calendars called, "Men on a Mission," which featured 12 shirtless Mormon male church missionaries). He explained that he created the Hot Mormon Muffin calender to combat stereotypes of Mormon mothers as "stuffy or hyper-conservative and mothers in particular as homemakers from another era."
The women featured in the calendar include stay-at-home moms, students, real estate agents, cosmetologists, and dance instructors. One is a former Miss Utah and another is a breast cancer survivor. They think the calendar is funny, although they admit that it isn't in keeping with the message of modesty promoted by their church.
But not everyone finds the project to be so humorous. In fact, Hardy has since lost his membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as well as his diploma from the church-owned Brigham Young University.
It should be noted that, according to the official Web site, profits from sales of the calendar will benefit breast cancer research.
What do you think of the Hot Mormon Muffins calendar? Hilarious and a good way to raise money for a good cause? Or offensive?
