The Kootenai County Republican Central Committee is about to throw the First Amendment out the window. They wish to declare Idaho a Christian state.
As any 12th grade social studies student could tell you, the First Amendment states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Which part of “an establishment of religion” do the members of the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee not understand?
On Flag Day, June 14, 1943, Digital Journal reports Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson announced, “If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein. Do the citizens of Idaho, or any state, have fewer rights in the matter of freedom of conscience than they did during WWII?
Committee Member Jeff Tyler said “It’s important that Christians stand up and be unashamed to say they’re Christians.” The First Amendment gives Mr. Tyler the right to believe in Christianity. It does not give him the right to ignore or oppress people in his state who choose to follow a different faith.

Dr Rod Rohrich’s
lecture focused on how facial transformation procedures are changing as more is discovered about how to use the facial structure and fat underneath the skin in face lifts. Dr. Rohrich revealed important information and techniques to help the surgeons in attendance successfully implement this knowledge in future procedures.
Dr. Rod Rohrich explain that facelifts of the past are entirely different today. Each approach is different based on each patient’s unique aging process. Surgeons should consider how a person ages and their facial anatomical structure when planning facial rejuvenation procedures. His audience listened as he explain a face lift technique that tightens the skin and then uses fat deposits from the patient’s body to fill specific areas of the face creating a subtle youthful appearance.
June 2014, Dr Rod Rohrich was also asked to speak at the Harvard University. He was that year’s Varaztad H. Kazanjian Visiting Professor and this is a prestigious honor to be chosen as a lecturer. Dr. Varaztad H Kazanjian was Harvard’s first plastic surgeon professor. He is considered one of the pioneers of modern plastic surgery.
Audiences everywhere are fascinated with Dr. Rohrich approach and advances in reconstructive facial improvements. He believes that after a procedure people shouldn’t look different but should look like their younger selves. He asks his patients to bring photographs of when they were younger so that he can perfectly plan his procedures and techniques.
Dr. Rohrich brings to the table an air of artistry and perfection. He is doctor who is enduring and cares deeply about his patients and the end result. His never ending search for improving how plastic surgery is performed, and his generosity in sharing knowledge and techniques with his peers is an admirable quality.
