Ave Maria
« on: June 17, 2005, 02:28:55 PM »
Founder of Dominoes and Ave Marie Law School is now opening school and town in Florida.  I'm a catholic but seems disturbing. Must be a fun law school. I never applied and they offered me a full scholarship. I wonder if they knew I was a liberal if the offer would have been rescinded.

"Ave Maria won’t be just a university, he continues. It will also be a new town, built from scratch, in which the wickedness of the world will be kept at bay. "We’ve already had about 3500 people inquire on our Web site about buying a home there — you know, they’re all Catholic," Monaghan says excitedly. "We’re going to control all the commercial real estate, so there’s not going to be any pornography sold in this town. We’re controlling the cable system. The pharmacies are not going to be able to sell condoms or dispense contraceptives." A private chapel will be located within walking distance of each home. At the stunning church in the center of town, Mass will be said hourly, seven days a week, from 6 a.m. on. "So," Monaghan concludes, with just a hint of understatement, "it’ll be a unique town." As he exits the stage, the applause is thunderous.

They have three different links to stories about it on www.wonkette.com. I would be interested to hear from a current student at the school what the atmosphere is like?

Not exactly the most trusted source of news in the world. Nothing like CBS or Newsweek, anyway. Find me something solid.
