NAPLES, Florida (AP) -- 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.Read CNN article

The town is designed for 20,000 people where property rights are strictly constitutional in that the homeowners own their property outright (see US Constitution Bill of Rights Amendment XIV, section 1
However, commercial property is subject to certain restrictions (no porn, no birthcontrol, no abortions) and is controlled by Monaghan and Barron Collier. Thank God they are Catholic so you can still get your booze!
There is a large outcry against the "restrictions". However, it is clearly the pro-abortion folks that are crying. No one complains about the Utah Mormans and their liquor restrictions. No one complains about the various "dry" counties in Texas, or the state run liquor stores in Virginia. It is also disingenuous since what about WalMart? They don't sell porn. Are my rights being trampled since I can't buy the latest copy of Juggs or Hustler? I have to GO TO ANOTHER STORE! GAH!
This is clearly just a whine from those who wish to throw personal responsibility and innocent life to the wind. Seriously, in a town of 20K people, what sort of advanced medical services are they expecting? If you want to flush your kid, go to the next town; Ave Maria's hospital is too busy treating the drug addicts, drunks, and firearm accidents. Need condoms? Next town over.
Oh, and take your ACLU shysters with you...
I do see a business opportunity, though. Just as in Texas with it's dry counties and liquor stores, there will be porn shops popping up on the city limits. Probably owned by the people living in the city.
