    I am not a member of the Mormon Church but in the last time I got to know that Church and started to explore it.There are really a lot of things I like very much but some views are hard for me to understand and sound too strict and too engaging.
    I was especially surprised when I found that Calendar by chance on the internet, first I thought that it cannot fit with the views in the Mormon Church ( even though I am young and the boys are not unattractive at all when you know what I mean )
    but actually it is a good thing!It is everybody´s own chance to sign up for something like that and one should not condemn Mr.Hardy either the models because in my opinion that has nothing to do with their love and true believe to god and to the Church.
