    (AP) Judge: US can't make Monaghan offer contraceptives DETROIT A judge has blocked the federal government from requiring the founder of Domino's Pizza to provide mandatory contraception coverage to his employees under the health care law. U.S. District Judge Lawrence Zatkoff on Thursday granted a preliminary injunction against enforcement of the contraception provision of the law against Tom Monaghan and Domino's Farms Corp. near Ann Arbor, Mich.

    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...

    Sibelius, Obama's Secretary of Health got an earful too!Benedict Arlen Specter (DEMOCRAT-PA) got an earful when he held a Town Hall meeting on health care at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia over the weekend. Andrew Monaghan who blogs at Panzramic, showed up to document the ACORN/union thugs who were bused in along with exploited handicapped people to help make the case for Obama care. Andrew also found a very raucous crowd of citizens who are mad as hell at the socialist circus in Washington and are not going to take it any more. So many voters angry at Obama's...

    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...

    Domino's Pizza founder Thomas S. Monaghan, who is helping to bankroll the birth of a Florida town and university, backtracked Friday from comments that he'd like the community to be governed by strict Roman Catholic principles. His ideas about barring pornography and birth control, he said, apply only to the Catholic university. "There are a lot of misconceptions," Monaghan said Friday. Both the town of Ave Maria and its Ave Maria University, the first Catholic university to be built in the United States in four decades, are set to open next year about 25 miles east of Naples in southwest...

    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.

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Only a week after the Board of Trustees of Ave Maria College reaffirmed its commitment to continue the Michigan college through 2007, and to explore options to keep the school functioning after that, Thomas Monaghan announced that he wants the school shut down in 2007. His decision is detailed in a June 11 letter to the three trustees who comprise a special committee charged with exploring the viability of proposals for the continuation of AMC. "It is my judgment that the available resources should be utilized for an orderly and effective completion of the ‘teach out’...

    YPSILANTI, Mich. - In a former elementary school gym, framed by green-tiled walls lined with pictures of the saints and the Passion of Christ, Nicole Myshak begins the Angelus, an ancient prayer better known to her grandmother's generation. "The angel of the Lord declared unto Mary," the 24-year-old intones. "And she conceived of the Holy Spirit," respond classmates and teachers who fill the college chapel. The prayer is followed by a solemn Mass, a daily high point at Ave Maria College, one of a small but growing number of liberal arts colleges that promote traditional Roman Catholicism. Myshak and her...

    NAPLES, Fla. — On a remote 750-acre site near the Everglades, Ave Maria University, the nation's first new Roman Catholic university in four decades, is about to rise from the fields of peppers and tomatoes that stretch to the horizon. The founder of Ave Maria, Tom Monaghan, is better known as the founder of Domino's Pizza. He has grand plans for the university: majors as varied as theology and hotel management; a Division I football team; three golf courses, including one for donors only; and a new town, Ave Maria, with a commercial center joining the campus. But his mission...
