Pizza Magnate Plans Catholic-Governed Town
Posted on Mar 2, 2006
NAPLES, Fla. - If Domino’s Pizza founder Thomas S. Monaghan has his way, a new town being built in Florida will be governed according to strict Roman Catholic principles, with no place to get an abortion, pornography or birth control.
The pizza magnate is bankrolling the project with at least $250 million and calls it “God’s will.”
Civil libertarians say the plan is unconstitutional and are threatening to sue.
Truthdig says: Couldn’t the guy put his money where it’s really needed, like toward schools in Darfur? (Or a pizza crust that doesn’t resemble a sponge full of grease?)
The town of Ave Maria, Fla., is being planned around strict Catholic rules against abortion, pornography and birth control.
