Domino's Pizza founder to bankroll Catholic town

John Aravosis points to the latest antics of the American Taliban:

Dominos Pizza founder Thomas S. Monaghan is putting up $250 million to build a Catholic town--a planned community like Disney's Celebration, Florida. Except, far from being the happiest place on earth, Ave Maria, FL will be a place where you won't be able rent porn, or buy birth control, or get an abortion. Residents will be able to admire the "worlds largest crucifix" in their town center. The ACLU says the project is unconstitutional and is considering legal action.

Florida Gov. Governor Jeb Bush, himself a convert to Catholocism, says ominiously that Ave Maria could be "a new kind of town where faith and freedom will merge to create a community of like-minded citizens."
