Domino’s Pizza founder sues to keep contraception from workers

The founder of the Domino’s Pizza chain filed a lawsuit on Friday in an effort to prevent his employees from accessing free contraception through the company’s health insurance provider.

Tom Monaghan, a billionaire who founded Domino’s Pizza but has since resigned and now owns the company’s office complex, is a devout Catholic and believes that using contraception is “gravely immoral,” according to his court filing. The suit adds that prior to the Affordable Care Act’s passage, the company specifically sought out insurance that does not cover contraception.

I'm going to write to Dominos to let them know why thye have now lost regular customers of several years.

23. apparently, the company says this idiot separated from the company in 1998 or 9

and has nothing to do with their policies. They aren't going to cut this out of their plans. There is a thread or two up list.

4. He's been a rw nut-bag for years.

Why in god's name would anyone outside a college town eat that shit?

Of course, my former-small-town boy friend and our former-small-town tennant/roommate waited till I was out of town to order Papa John's knowing I would scream bloody murder over ordering that crap. And that was BEFORE I knew he was a right-wing DB.

I guess people go back to their roots.

The boyfriend will mention Taco Bell once in a while (he worked there as a kid). Seriously? With literally hundreds of Taqueria in Chicago??? How those places do ANY business here is beyond me.

8. I don't know how Taco Bell stays in business here.

There's a really amazing cheap Mexican restaurant where I live called Pepe's and they have some great food for not a lot of money. Yet the Taco Bell across the street is constantly packed. I don't get it.

20. Taste buds of the masses? Their propensity for quick "food"?

Look at how well Papa John's was doing before his big political statement... and Monahan.

11. Yep. Of course, he sold out several years ago - to BAIN capital.

He is building his own Catholic paradise town in Florida (where else?) were porn and contraception won't be allowed.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Monaghan#Domino.27s_Pizza

Ave Maria College

As a step to fulfilling his dream of creating a new Catholic university, Monaghan founded Ave Maria College in Ypsilanti, Michigan. In various attempts to accelerate accreditation, Monaghan acquired St. Mary's College of Orchard Lake and a campus in Nicaragua, renamed Ave Maria College of the Americas.

Due to lack of funding, the college, against faculty and student protests, closed in 2007. Alternative funding was not secured to prevent the school's closure. St. Mary's College was sold and is now under the auspices of nearby Madonna University.

Ave Maria University, Florida

In early 2002 Monaghan sought to establish the Ave Maria University in Ann Arbor, at Domino's Farms, the large corporate office park that he owned and leased to Domino's Pizza. The plans included a 250-foot crucifix - taller than the Statue of Liberty. Local officials refused to approve the zoning change, forcing him to look elsewhere for a site. Eventually community leaders in Collier County, Florida, offered him a large undeveloped tract of land thirty miles east of Naples, Florida to develop the university.

In February 2006, ground was broken for the new Catholic university and town, Ave Maria, Florida. A joint venture, in which Monaghan is a 50% partner with developer Barron Collier, controls all non-university real estate in the town, and plans to build 11,000 homes and several business districts. Pulte Homes has been signed up to build most of the private homes. Monaghan said in 2005 that any town retailers would not be allowed to sell contraceptives or pornography, a statement which drew legal and moral criticism from the ACLU. Threatened with lawsuits, Monaghan and the developers went on a national PR campaign in March 2007 to retract the notion that Catholic doctrine could ever be enforced as law. Defenders of Wildlife has also challenged the development, stating it is destroying habitat of the endangered Florida Panther.

7. Do what you want but he has not OWNED the company for years

I am not going to tell someone to eat Dominoes as it is shit (better than Papa Johns but still shit) but he does not own or run the company any more so writing to them will not really help.

12. Yeah, it's owned by Bain Capital because that's better.

Well not really "owned" as they took it public. I wonder who the main shareholders are? Wonder if Mittens has a big stake - either individually or through Bain as a holder.

14. No, not really better but should not be blamed for the droolings of someone no longer connected

again, I don't care because I would not eat that shit if it was given away for free. I just hate poorly aimed actions. Aim well when you fight.
