This is quite an ambitious project. I'm a liberal Catholic so I don't know if I would completely fit in.

Great, just what the Everglades needs, more development

Is it actually possible for one person to own a town?

Sounds more like a commune.

I used to work for a wealthy Catholic attorney who "competed" with Monaghan in their "work" for their faith. They build chapels as demonstrations of their devotion. I'm not sure they do the work for God or just for themselves.

How lovely, a Catholic town! Do they breed all their kittens white, so that you can see them in the night? :nickcave:

If he's such a devout Catholic, why doesn't he use his millions to benefit the poor instead of building his own little commune so he and his friends don't have to bother dealing with people who don't believe exactly like they do?

We don't know how much he gives to the poor.

The town, however, sounds more like the monuments to God cathedrals that dot the globe. Monaghan wants his place in world history.

What an ambitious pair! I am sure they compete for their own egos and that God has nothing to do with their "work". I think it's rather sad.

As for owning one's own town or building a Catholic community, my reaction is simply Sounds a bit cultish to me.

The guy I worked for built his own chapel in the office building. Company lunch meetings followed Catholic guidelines and contraception was not covered by the health plans.

I guess its a life stlye choice altough it does sound alittle creepy to me. I guess it is all the community that a church provides times 100.

I wonder what their take out will be like. All pizza or is indian or chinese takeout heathen or economically forbidden?

Its a pity, nothing is better then having deeply religous neighbors and now this guy had to hoard them all away.

The average American Catholic would not fit in with Monaghan, let alone liberal Catholics. Up here in Michigan, we're quite familiar with his fanaticism. He's an ultraconservative Catholic that hates Vatican II. He created a law school and an order of nuns, both of which conform to pre-Vatican II standards. The law school, in itself, scares me because, clearly, he's not interested in any separation of church and state.

Anyway, his lunacy would have remained in Michigan, had the city of Ann Arbor not deemed a gigantic cross he wanted to build on his law school campus against zoning laws. He then moved everything to Florida. I see he's continuing his lunacy in Florida.

It bothers me that the Vatican only cracks down on liberal dissent, while giving a blind eye to conservative heretics.

(Plus, he's not too bright to want to build a $400 million town in a prime hurricane target like Florida.)

How does a private law school violate "separation of church and state"?
