Domino’s Pizza founder, Tom Monaghan, has sued the government over the Free Birth Control Rule. Monaghan, who already offers employees health insurance that doesn’t cover contraception, is a very devout Catholic. How devout? He founded Ave Maria University and Ave Maria Law School–both orthodox Catholic institutions of higher learning. (Neither are parties to this suit, which involves Monaghan’s business interests.) He takes his faith very seriously and clearly is more than willing to put his considerable money where his mouth is.
This isn’t about birth control, but the power of the government to bulldoze freedom of religion down to a mere freedom of worship. Regardless of one’s faith or lack thereof, all who believe in American liberty should wish Monaghan well.
