Autiello: Will True Christianity Please Stand Up?

Nick Autiello, Contributor

The notion that homosexuality is a sin and un-Christian is one that is less than a hundred years old. It is wrong, and has no basis in scriptural or historical reality.

SASSO: The Coming New Year

James Sasso, Associate Editor

As the tumultuous 2011 comes down to its final day, this column could contain an obnoxious summary of the year’s extraordinary events. Rather than once again discussing the protests around the world, the death of Osama Bin Laden, Fukushima, America’s political ineptitude, Europe’s demise or the increasingly frightful weather patterns, here I attempt to predict what 2012 holds in store.

SASSO: Kicking the Can

James Sasso, Associate Editor

For one of the first times in his tenure as Speaker, John Boehner has made a statement with which every American, Republican or Democrat, should fully agree; the two-month Senate bipartisan extension of the payroll tax cut fails to fix the nation’s problems sufficiently. Providing a short-term band-aid to a long-term dilemma contradicts what a responsible government should accomplish, but fits the pattern of contemporary American politicking.

CIOCCI: A Foolish Consistency

Mitt Romney is guilty of serial hypocrisy, Newt Gingrich is guilty of being a public intellectual constantly scrutinized by the media and others, and Ron Paul never ceases to remind me about one of my favorite quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Essays: “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.”

AKMAN: Jon Huntsman’s Meaningless Campaign

Josh Akman, Columnist

Jon Huntsman did not participate in the CNN Debate in Las Vegas on Tuesday night. Short of his family and small (and getting smaller) campaign staff, no one really noticed. In a bizarre and counterproductive effort to impress New Hampshire voters Huntsman skipped the debate to protest Nevada moving its caucus ahead of New Hampshire’s, which has always been the nation’s first primary. It’s bizarre because no one else skipped the debate. It’s counterproductive because right now, Jon Huntsman is polling 6% in New Hampshire.

SASSO: The 99% Rising

James Sasso

Associate Editor

For the past month a movement has grown out of Zuccoti Park in New York with the potential to grab at the very heart of America’s problems. “We are the 99%” is not simply a catchy phrase used by frustrated jobless Americans , but a commentary on the disgraceful economic inequality that has arisen in the United States since the 1970s.

ROGERS: 5 Reasons Romney Can’t Beat Obama

Conor Rogers, Editor

Mitt Romney, the GOP’s (sort-of) front-runner has a far too inconstant and ideologically diverse history to withstand the barrage of scrutiny, one-linters and television ads that come along with any campaign.

BILBO: Enthusing the Urban Base for 2012

Tyler Bilbo, Democrat

In an ailing economy that features an extraordinarily high jobless rate, Democrats will struggle to build on the gains of 2006 and 2008. As Republicans look to capitalize on the fluidity of the suburban electorate, Democrats need to re-energize core urban constituencies in order to re-elect Barack Obama.

BILBO: What Happened?

Tyler Bilbo, Democrat

Democrats shouldn’t panic over Scott Brown’s victory – the Northeast has a surprising history of sending Republicans to Washington and the national stage.

WALK: Brown Soars and Coakley Sours

Michele Walk, Moderate

The special election to replace Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat is still over a week away, but one thing is for sure: Massachusetts voters are not about to obediently elect a Democrat for the sake of electing a Democrat. Republican Scott Brown has boots on the ground, impressive fundraising, and the underdog’s zeal. If State Attorney General Martha Coakley wants to win this race, she will have to fight for it – riding on Kennedy’s sordid coat tails simply will not cut it.

WALK: ObamaCare Would Repeat the Errors of RomneyCare

There are significant flaws with Massachusetts’ health care reform, which the Democrats’ health care plans are largely modeled on.

EDWARDS: A Dying Man’s Last Wish

Why Massachusetts should uphold the wishes of democracy over the wishes of Sen. Kennedy.
