The will of God prevails. In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one mustbe, wrong. God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time. In the present civil war it is quite possible that God’s purpose is something different from the purpose of either party — and yet the human instrumentalities, working just as they do, are of the best adaptation to effect His purpose. I am almost ready to say that this is probably true — that God wills this contest, and wills that it shall not end yet. By his mere great power, on the minds of the now contestants, He could have either saved or destroyed the Union without a human contest. Yet the contest began. And, having begun He could give the final victory to either side any day. Yet the contest proceeds.

When Huckabee said that he supported the “biblical model of marriage,” Stewart shot back that “the biblical model of marriage is polygamy.”
And there’s a big problem, Stewart went on, with reducing “biblical values” to one or two social issues such as abortion and gay marriage, while ignoring issues such as poverty and immigration reform.
It may come as some surprise that as an evangelical Christian, I cheered Stewart on from my living room couch.

Rachel Maddow explains the 2012 election and its result
I don’t often think to write reviews of any type, I have a difficult time achieving a unbiased objective understanding of a project, or movie, or video game. For me all critiques are relative to the perspective of the viewer and from that location a central view can generate a spectrum from things that are awful, to the passable, to the spectacular. As such it was always a foregone conclusion that I would enjoy Halo 4, but what was not as well known was whether 343 Industries could hold onto my love of the characters and not just the gameplay. I was not disappointed. (Spoiler Photo Ahead)
