    I always figured the Church held that all people (in this instance, women would be included as people) are beautiful in the eyes of God. I guess some are more beautiful than others.

    They probably got the idea from the Mormon firefighters calendar.

    I love this quote: "Nuns are a bit excluded, they are a bit marginalized in ecclesiastical life." As if a beauty contest is the way to rectify women's exclusion and marginalization, as opposed to, oh, say, abolishing the recognition of manhood as a job requirement for various ecclesiastical roles.
