    Robots have changed our lives in many ways, from advancing our healthcare and automating our factory lines, to taking on dangerous tasks and even taking our place in warfare. Now Domino's have developed possibly the greatest use for robots yet - safe and secure pizza delivery in what the company claims is a world first.

    We had this in headlines a couple of days ago, but many probably missed it over the holidays. It's enough of a departure from other recent decisions that it's worth posting here, and I have a feeling we could use a little good news on a bad day. The devoutly Catholic founder of Domino's filed this lawsuit on behalf of an office park he owns in Michigan, not Domino's Pizza, but the suit is one of more than 40 brought against the federal government to prevent religious owners of secular businesses from being forced to violate their religious beliefs under...

    The billionaire founder of Domino's Pizza has won a temporary court victory, with a federal judge blocking enforcement of part of the health care reform bill requiring most employers to provide a range of contraception and reproductive health services. Some business owners and their staff see that as a violation of their religious rights. Federal Judge Lawrence Zatkoff issued his order late Sunday, saying Thomas Monaghan had "shown that abiding by the mandate will substantially burden his exercise of religion." "The (federal) government has failed to satisfy its burden of showing that its actions were narrowly tailored to serve a...

    Detroit - A federal judge has ruled a property management company owned by the founder of Domino´s Pizza doesn ´t have to immediately implement mandatory contraception coverage in the health care law. U.S. District Judge Lawrence Zatkoff ruled Sunday in favor of Tom Monaghan and his Domino´s Farms Corp.,near Ann Arbor. Monaghan,a devout Roman Catholic,says contraception isn´t health care but a "gravely immoral" practice. Zatkoff granted Monaghan´s emergency motion for a temporary restraining order until a final decision is made in the case.

    Chicago Tribune ^ | May 31, 2010 | Greg Burns
    In the test kitchen at the corporate headquarters for Domino's Pizza Inc., a chef dressed in a starched white coat was going through the familiar motions: Sauce on crust, cheese on sauce, pepperoni on cheese, then bake. But this pizza's different, as it has been in Domino's stores across the U.S. since late December. The 9,000-unit chain took a big chance, not only reformulating its signature product for the American market but also disparaging its long-standing recipe in a straight-talk marketing campaign. The old crust? "Cardboard," the company admitted in its ads. The old sauce? "Ketchup." The staff? Weary of...

    When two Domino’s Pizza employees filmed a prank in the restaurant’s kitchen, they decided to post it online. In a few days, thanks to the power of social media, they ended up with felony charges, more than a million disgusted viewers, and a major company facing a public relations crisis. In videos posted on YouTube and elsewhere this week, a Domino’s employee in Conover, N.C., prepared sandwiches for delivery while putting cheese up his nose, nasal mucus on the sandwiches, and violating other health-code standards while a fellow employee provided narration. The two were charged with delivering prohibited foods.

    Domino's Pizza founder Tom Monaghan endorsed Mitt Romney today. As one of Michigan's highest profile business successes this would be news in itself, but it is far more important than just another keen observer of the economy recognizing Romney's qualifications to serve as president. Monaghan is a Catholic's Catholic, the founder of Ave Maria University and Law School, and one of the forces behind Legatus, an organization of senior Catholic business leaders. He is an ardent pro-lifer, and a man deeply concerned with rescuing the culture. Monaghan's decision to announce today is a clear signal to social conservatives that it...
  • "Conservative" Catholic Law School Aids/Abets Illegal Aliens

    When Domino's Pizza founder and billionaire Tom Monaghan set up Ave Maria School of Law, he claimed it was because all other Catholic law schools were liberal, and he wanted a conservative one. So, given that, what the heck is conservative about helping illegal aliens? That's the latest project of Ave Maria School of Law, which makes it . . . just like all the other liberal Catholic law schools. Question for our many conservative Catholic readers who are against illegal immigration: Is there any Catholic belief whatsoever that requires aiding and abetting illegal aliens?

    The 5,000-acre tomato field in southwestern Florida sure doesn't look like heaven. Bulldozers scrape the land flat while clusters of Porta Pottis signal an undeniable earthiness. But soon a massive cathedral will rise from this barren spot. Reaching 100 feet in the air behind a 65-foot crucifix, the Oratory will anchor Ave Maria, a whole new town and Roman Catholic university 30 miles east of Naples. Ground was officially broken last week, and the plan is to build 11,000 homes—likely drawing families who already hold the church at the center of their lives. For Tom Monaghan, the devout Catholic who...

    NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - The Roman Catholic university founded by Domino's pizza magnate Thomas Monaghan has graduated its first class, giving an honorary degree to L. Paul Bremer, who once led the U.S. occupation in Iraq. Twenty-three students received bachelor's degrees Saturday from Ave Maria University, the first Catholic university to open in the United States in four decades. Bremer, a Catholic, told graduates their generation will fight Islamic extremism the way their fathers fought communism. He said Muslim extremists "hate the very foundations of Western civilization," including separation of church and state, democracy and freedom of religion. The school...

    NEW YORK (CBS.MW) -- Investors are craving the Domino's Pizza IPO due early next week in a deal that'll deliver stock worth at least $40 million to a Catholic charity established by Thomas Monaghan, the pizza chain's founder. The company that started out selling pizza to hungry University of Michigan students in 1960 plans to go public as early as Monday at a price range of $15-$17 per share, with more than 10 percent of the offering devoted to raising funds for the Ave Maria Foundation.
