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.

BILBO: The Rise of the “P” Word

Tyler Bilbo, Columnist

As Democrats sit idle, Glenn Beck and the right have turned a neutralizing political label into a pejorative.

LIFSON: Obama Must Fight Fox News

Fox News is the biggest single threat to President Obama. With unedited Republican talking points deceptively disseminated to the population as fact, it is no wonder that President Obama has had difficultly communicating his policies to the public. Obama must hit back, and he must hit back hard, or the American public will continue its rightward drift until the entire government is run by warmongering cowboy impersonators.

McCAFFREY: Summer of Stevens

Kathleen McCaffrey, Libertarian Republican

Justice John Paul Stevens resigned at an opportune time for Republicans. Even if he will be replaced by a liberal, the circus is coming to DC this summer.

BILBO: The Tea Party’s Race Problem

Tyler Bilbo, Democrat

Shortly before the House of Representatives passed a drastic overhaul of our health care system, Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats walked arm-in-arm through an angry mob of protesters that converged on The National Mall. As the Speaker clenched the arm of John Lewis, a current Congressman who organized the Selma to Montgomery Marches, I could not help but think about the Civil Rights Movement.

SIEFF: We Must Not Be Enemies

Adam Sieff, Liberal

Instead of transforming the victims of market fluctuations and misguided economic policy into a partisan militia, why not help them? This nation needs jobs, not inflammatory partisanship, and it needs them soon.

AUTIELLO: A Return to Statesmanship

Nick Autiello, Moderate Republican

The American statesman is dead. The level of political debate in the United States today has sunk to an all time low, and it should be troubling to all Americans, regardless of political party.
