Catholic Town, USA

It’s not everyday you see something like this:

The town will not allow adult bookstores or topless clubs. However, it will merely suggest, not prohibit, businesses from selling adult magazines or contraceptives.
“We are not going to censor any of that information, but in deference to Ave Maria University, we are going to request that they not sell that merchandise but we are not restricting,” said Barron Collier chief executive Paul Marinelli.
“The misconception we’re trying to clarify is that this is not going to be a strictly Catholic town. … I think it would be boring if in fact it was all Catholic,” Marinelli said.
He said the town would welcome “synagogues as well as Baptist churches.”

Hehehe… I think it would be boring if it were all Catholic. I need to make a bumper sticker of that one. Something along the lines of “Homogeneity is boring!” Or “Diversity is better than porn!” I don’t know, man. The very idea of a whole town being created by and for Catholics is almost as weird as a whole town being built by the founder of Domino’s Pizza. No. Wait, that’s the weird part. Domino’s Pizza?
