[q]Pizza Magnate Seeks Catholic-Governed Town
By BRIAN SKOLOFF, Associated Press Writer
Wed Mar 1, 2:08 PM ET

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.

The town of Ave Maria is being constructed around Ave Maria University, the first Catholic university to be built in the United States in about 40 years. Both are set to open next year about 25 miles east of Naples in southwestern Florida.

How boring. Whatever happened to founding your own religion and then creating a town?
