Ex-Mormon calendar-maker has BYU diploma yanked

Men on a Mission Mormon Calendar Brigham Young University has yanked the diploma of a man who created a calendar featuring shirtless Mormon missionaries and was later excommunicated from the church.

“When a student applies for graduation, he or she must be in good standing with the university,” BYU spokeswoman Cari Jenkins said.

The BYU letter said Hardy’s degree is on hold because he was not in good honor code standing because of his excommunication. The LDS Church owns and operates BYU.

Mormon missionary calendar-maker excommunicated

Mormon Missionaries Calendar The creator of a calendar that featured shirtless Mormon missionaries was excommunicated Sunday after a disciplinary meeting with local church leaders in Las Vegas.

“Men on a Mission,” which has sold nearly 10,000 copies at $14.99 each, included pictures of 12 returned missionaries wearing black slacks, but not their trademark white shirts, in modest poses. The men also were photographed in traditional missionary garb and share their religious beliefs in biographical sketches.
