How the pizza chain's founder established Ave Maria, a Florida community called a 'Catholic's paradise'...must read!

How Domino's Pizza chain's founder established Ave Maria in Florida
Ave Maria Town (main) - a planned community outside of Naples built by Domino's founder Tom Monaghan (top right) - is wholly religious-centric and unconstitutional, critics say. In announcing his plans for the town in 2004, Monaghan, a one-time seminarian, said: 'There is not going to be any pornographic television in Ave Maria Town. If 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.' While Monaghan took back the statements as the town took shape - after he donated $250 million to the cause - the now-fully-functional remote hamlet says it is open to all, but still appears to practice what Monaghan preached. According to Business Insider, the town's only OB/GYN reportedly refuses to prescribe contraception to women, and there are no pharmacies in where birth control can be purchased.
