Remember Chad Hardy, that feisty Latter-day Saint who came up with a calendar featuring hot Mormon missionaries and was later excommunicated from the church? (My kind of Mormon!) Well, the good folks over at Brigham Young University sure do. To thank him for his hard work they've yanked his diploma:
A Sept. 30 letter from Norman B. Finlinson, the school’s executive director of student academic and advisement services, said a nonacademic hold was placed on Hardy’s record after the church-owned university learned of the excommunication.
"If in the future you are reinstated as a member of the church in good standing, you are invited to contact my office regarding your possible eligibility for the awarding of a degree," Finlinson wrote.
Hardy, 31, plans to challenge the school’s decision.
“I intend to fight this tooth-and-nail,” he said.
Since Chad's life is fucked anyway, we might as well enjoy what got him barred from the Celestial Kingdom forevermore ...
