Skip to comments.The Domino’s Pizza founder created a Catholic 'paradise' town with no birth control or pornography

After Dominoâs founder Tom Monaghan sold the pizza chain, he had a grander vision for his next project: a university and town built on Catholic beliefs.
âThere is not going to be any pornographic television in Ave Maria Town,â Monaghan said in 2004, in a speech on his vision for the Florida town. âIf you go to the drug store and you want to buy the pill or the condoms or contraception, you won't be able to get that in Ave Maria Town.â
While Monaghan retracted his statements, Ave Maria has grown into a religious-centric town like no other in the last 12 years, funded in large part by the former pizza CEO.
In 2003, Ave Maria University opened in Florida, on a temporary campus in what would become Ave Maria Town. Monaghan donated $250 million to found the university, and served as CEO until 2011.
Monaghan is known for linking his faith and politics, donating thousands of dollars to anti-abortion organizations and measures, as well as filing a lawsuit against Obamacare due to its free contraception coverage. Ave Maria University was founded with similar aspirations of bringing religion to public life, hoping to mold âthe future faithful educators, leaders, and mentors that our challenged society needs.â

Both can not be proved.
The Leftists just HATE Tom Monaghan with a searing demonic passion.
Not to worry.
HUD will break this up with mandatory Section 8 housing faster than you can say “Allahu Akbar!”
You actually mean Capitalism can produce wealth, freedom, and religious freedom? No way! S/
I drove through there about 4 years ago. It is very inspirational.
The left is just weird. They are complaining non stop about Kim Davis being on the SOTU last night. I told them that we had ONE sorta conservative in the chambers and you guys had 100. No response after I say that though of course. Same with this town. One town out of thousands in America and they bash it. Do we want Berkley closed down? No.....why would we? We Certainly don’t want to live there but what do I care if it is a living city. Could totally care less. Liberals get their nose out of joint on the dumbest things.
My wife and I stopped for lunch there last May. Church in the center of town and quite beautiful.
Let me guess: West Hollywood
Let Berkeley and the rest of Leftistan secede from America.
I drove through there the other day, just to check it out. Lots of building going on, very beautiful area.
So, are they checking people's browser histories?
Leftists are now embracing the murder cult, uh religion, it fits them better, it has everything. The war against women, child molestation and abuse, murder, mayhem, war against lesbians and gays, free speech, everything they are against
