When Domino's founder Tom Monaghan sold his enormous pizza business, he wanted to do more with his money than just play golf.
In 2007, Monaghan opened Ave Maria, Florida, a planned community centered on his own Catholic values.
The town boasts a beautiful golf course, scenic views and a massive church in the middle of town. But some are raising concerns that the town is dominated by Monaghan's ideology. The American Civil Liberties Union accused Monaghan of trying to exercise governmental authority over the town.
