Domino's Founder To Create A Paradise On Earth

Domino's Pizza founder, Tom Monaghan, is trying to create his version of paradise on earth near Naples, Florida. He is building Ava Maria University, and it will share the town with the same name as the Pizza founder.

The new community will have strict Christian beliefs. It will be a town without adult bookstores, or topless bars. It will have strict family values. Monaghan is a devout Catholic. In keeping with the Catholic doctrine, he is asking doctors that set up shop there to offer no contraception. Also, pharmacies and convenience stores will be asked not to stock condoms or any type of pornography.

The town has some support from some prominet leaders in the state of Florida, even the President's brother is happy with the idea -- Governor Jeb Bush is thrilled with the idea.

"I think it will be a model for sustainable living, not just for Florida, but for the country."

Gabrielle Gilmore lives in nearby Naples and doesn't like the thought of the new city.

"I fear they will try to impose their religious and moral views on the rest of the community."

The ACLU has threatened to sue if they try and enforce any of their moral beliefs.
