We agree with the assessment Tom McClintock’s Sept. 10 letter, “Robinson’s own record, actions attest to his extreme positions,” about Art Robinson, the Republican candidate for Congress running against Rep. Peter DeFazio.
One more example: Robinson’s home schooling business has a website with links (under Helpful Links, Resources) to the Chalcedon Foundation, founded by the late R.J. Rushdoony, and to books by Gary North, Rushdoony’s son-in-law. Rushdoony and North have promoted application of strict Old Testament law in civil government. Their ideas are far outside the mainstream in our society. We find it disturbing that Art Robinson is an advocate of Rushdoony’s philosophy.
