Mormons get dragged into the 21st century...

... kicking and screaming.



A firefighter-style calendar featuring shirtless mormons has created controversy in the mormon community (surprise!). Does their bible state that men can't pose in calendars? Are they not allowed to take their shirts off? Are mormon women not allowed to view their husbands as sex symbols when they make love? Are mormons only allowed to take personality into consideration when choosing a mate?

Oh well. There's no stopping progress...

I'd say no, they are not allowed.

Worse. From what I understand, they're not supposed to choose at all. God - in the form of their parents - choose a mate for them.

How many Mormons adhere to these teachings, I have no idea. But I once had a friend/co-worker who was a former Mormon (an escapee). This is what I gathered from her, among other horrors.
