SALT LAKE CITY -- The 2012 edition of pin-up calendar featuring bare chested former Mormon church missionaries will be the last printing of the controversial project, its creator says.
Calendar creator Chad Hardy says the five-year project has run its course.
The 35-year-old Palm Springs man was excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in part because he produced the calendar. His diploma from the church-owned Brigham Young University was also revoked.
Church and school leaders said the calendar didn't reflect Mormon values.
The fifth installment features the 12 most popular missionary photographs from previous years. The pictures were selected by fan votes cast on Hardy's mormonsexposed.com website.
The calendar goes on sale this week.
Over four years, Hardy says he's sold more than 25,000 calendars -- most in Mormon-dominated Utah.
