ACLU vs Tom Monaghan

There is an interesting discussion over at MSNBC about whether Tom Monaghan should/does have the right to establish a town with laws based upon Catholic moral principals such as forbidding access to pornography or contraception and still obtain federal funds.

I'm not sure about the legal issues and while Catholic schools and universities don't have to provide either on their campuses in order to receive federal funds, it is likely different with cities. On the other hand, I can't imagine anyone interested in those things chosing to live in/visit a town governed by conservative Catholics in order to obtain them.
