Resolved: Idaho, A Christian State?

A resolution calling for Idaho to be declared a "Christian state" is one of the items on the agenda when the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee meets Tuesday night at the Kootenai County Administrative Building. Here's some of the language of that resolution:

"Resolved, That the State of Idaho is formally and specifically declared a Christian state. The State of Idaho and all its institutions will render full recognition to the Christian basis thereof, not permitting any diminution or rejection of its status nor any restriction on its presence or role in the public arena. This is to be understood as a preservation of the Judeo-Christian bedrock of the founding of the United States and is not to be interpreted as restricting the free exercise of any other religion."
