Supplemental: Back when Nicholas Kristof was different!

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2015

Sanctimonious blowhard, heal thyself:
We’re so old that we can remember when Nicholas Kristof was different.

In today’s column, he’s at it again. He drops his first B-bomb on Alabama as early as paragraph 3!

At one time, he wasn’t like this. We’re so old that we can remember when Nicholas Kristof might start a column like this:
KRISTOF (4/24/04): I've argued often that gay marriage should be legal and that conservative Christians should show a tad more divine love for homosexuals.

But there's a corollary. If liberals demand that the Christian right show more tolerance for gays and lesbians, then liberals need to be more respectful of conservative Christians.
“Hug an Evangelical!” That’s what his headline said!

We don’t know how often Kristof had argued for same-sex marriage at that time. As of 2004, he hadn’t made the argument often in his New York Times column.

On the other hand:

Back in those days, Kristof was much more tolerant of beliefs which differed from his. This is the way he continued in that column:
KRISTOF (continuing directly): One of the most ferocious divides today is that between evangelical and secular America. Some conservative Christians are all too quick to sentence outsiders to hell. And liberals denounce stereotypes of Muslims but not of ''Christian nuts.''

It's encouraging that the right is less hostile to gays and lesbians than it used to be. President Bush argued in his 1994 run for governor that gay sex should be illegal, while now he feels comfortable hitting up gays for campaign contributions.

On the other hand, the left seems more contemptuous than ever of evangelicals.
On the whole, we tend to agree with what Kristof said that day! In our view, it was encouraging that the right was less hostile to gays and lesbians than it had been in the past.

But how odd! As of today, it’s Kristof himself who is openly “contemptuous of evangelicals,” as you can see by reading his new column.

He drops his first bomb right in paragraph 3. When our Dimmesdale thunders today, this is the way he begins:
KRISTOF (2/12/15): In North Carolina, three young Muslims who were active in charity work were murdered, allegedly by a man who identified as atheist and expressed hostility to Islam and other faiths. Police are exploring whether it was a hate crime, and it spurred a #MuslimLivesMatter campaign on Twitter.

And, in Alabama, we see judges refusing to approve marriages of any kind because then they would also have to approve same-sex marriages. In one poll conducted last year, some 59 percent of people in Alabama opposed gay marriage. Somehow a loving God is cited to bar loving couples from committing to each other.

These are very different news stories. But I wonder if a common lesson from both may be the importance of resisting bigotry, of combating the intolerance that can infect people of any faith—or of no faith.
Was that a hate crime in North Carolina, or was it a terrible crazy crime? If it was a hate crime, was it a hate crime “from the right” (hatred of Islam) or a hate crime “from the left” (hatred of religion)?

So far, nobody knows. But as of this morning, Kristof was already tilting a bit toward hate-crime-from-the-right. People like this have always loved to encourage a good cleansing war.

More strikingly, Kristof moves quickly to same-sex marriage, and to sunny Alabam'. Fifty-nine percent of the state is opposed to same-sex marriage, so Kristof drops his bomb.

Back then, Kristof preached patience and respect. Today, those people are bigots.

You may prefer the newer version of Kristof. We’d be inclined to disagree, for political and moral reasons. (There is no law which says that everyone has to agree with Kristof's views, or with our own, on a timetable he has set.)

For today, we simply thought it was worth noting the change in Kristof. At one time, he was quick to preach understanding. Now he tends to “otherize,” a fact which is a bit ironic given the larger theme of his column today.

Kristof’s opposed to “otherizing”—except when he’s the one doing it! We think he was wiser in 2004, when he drew hope from the progress he saw among people who hadn’t reached the exact same conclusion he had at the exact same time.

Is Nicholas Kristof losing his soul? We wouldn’t rush to deny it! But in our view, he’s been doing some very strange journalism, a point we’ll explore again tomorrow.

His trip to Haiti struck us as quite strange. This may be what happens when a big journo gets over-extended, overloaded with stars, becomes a big Hollywood “brand.”

The shape of the tribal mind: At one point, Kristof says this today:

“It seems odd to me that so many conservative Christians are obsessed with homosexuality, which Jesus never mentions.”

Really? Kristof finds that odd? We can't imagine why!

To us, it seems unfortunate when people are obsessed that way. But it doesn't exactly seem odd. Not long ago, people were much less agreeable in this area than they are today.

Fifty-nine percent are opposed to same-sex marriage in Alabama? That strikes us as a very low number, given the culture of the state.

In 2004, Kristof thought things were getting better. We still think things are getting better, though we doubt that those B-bombs will help.

    Apparently Kristof, like POTUS Obama, believes rampaging Christians are still a problem. It is radical Islam that is the current problem. Neither Obama or Kristof can put those two words together. History is not dependent on POTUS Obama acknowledging the past., even when his recollection of historic events are flawed as NYT Ross Douthat illustrates.

    1. As I heard it explained, our allies in the Middle East, the leaders of Muslim countries working with us to combat extremism, have explicitly asked us NOT to refer to radical Islam because it undermines their efforts. I tend to support the President in furthering the efforts to combat a common problem in the most effective way possible. I believe the right is using this as a stick to beat Obama for political purposes. I consider it unpatriotic of conservatives to be doing this in the midst of an ongoing military struggle.

    2. You heard only White House talking points.

      BEIRUT (AP) — The leader of the Lebanese Hezbollah group, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, says Islamic extremists have insulted Islam and the Prophet Muhammad more than those who published satirical cartoons mocking the religion."

      Here is Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Foreign Affairs Committee, saying the dreaded "radical Islam" phrase. She must be using it as a stick to beat Obama although he is busy with his own selfie stick on BuzzFeed.

      BTW: POTUS Obama isn't shy when it comes to saying Christian extremism. Why is that? There are 2 billion Christians. That's more than the number of Muslims.

    5. "hatred from the left (religion)"

      More semantic contortionism from our own Harvard graduate.

    6. Jewish and Christian sensibilities are not going to affect their cooperation in the battle against ISIS. The sensibilities of various Muslim leaders will. Why have you not addressed the statement that our State Department has been specifically asked by our allies not to use that phrase? Are you saying that request was not made or are you saying we should ignore such a request? If so, why? What is the harm in trying to assist them in maintaining public support for their collaboration with us?

      Delete
    7. In other words, it's Ok to offend Jews and Christians because they do not take hostages for beheading and immolation purposes. But since Christians and Jews have zero to do with the war on ISIS, why would Obama feel compelled to apologize for the Crusades at a National Prayer Breakfast?

      Isn't France our ally in the fight against terrorists ? They have no problem saying radical Islam. Is it likely that France was not told by Muslim countries not to use the phrase, or that no such request was asked of France or the U.S. and that the decision to abstain from using the phrase was made by POTUS Obama.

    8. One has to hand it to people who obsess so much over whether another person uses a phrase that they reveal their radical stupidity.

    9. Christians and Jews are fine. No one is calling them anything. No one is calling the French anything. The point is to help leaders of Muslim countries maintain popular support for their leaders who are actively fighting ISIS. This isn't rocket science. People in Muslim countries do not have the same attitude toward France as they do toward the West and especially the US. If you cannot understand this, you have no business going around the internet annoying others with your weird confusions.

    10. @11:28,

      Even if you consider the POTUS "no one" your comment would still be invincibly ignorant.

      Hate to tell you this, but the phrase "Western world" includes Europe. You do not believe France resides Europe? Pease take a remedial course in geography and political science before embarrassing yourself further.

      Outside of Jordan (and the Kurds) , what other Muslim country is actively fighting ISIS with their military forces? Not saying radical Islam is apparently not reaping any rewards from the Muslim world.

      As far as the Iraq military fighting ISIS, they threw down their weapons and ran prompting the U.S. to again attempt to encourage Iraq military to do their own fighting.

What credibility does the POTUS have left? He couldn't even fix his mouth to say that ISIS targeted Jews for murder in a Paris Kosher Deli. They were just "random folks." His press secretary Earnest claimed that since the terrorists didn't know the names of victims it couldn't possible be anti-Semitism. What a strunz..

    As a gay person who followed the campaigns of George W.Bush and John Kerry in 2004, I can say for certain that I did not feel Evangelicals becoming more tolerant of homosexuality that year. A friend's mother, who is conservative,evangelical and a perfectly nice woman in very many ways, was working at my polling place that year, specifically because Mr. Bush was supporting gay marriage bans in so many states, and she felt she needed to help. (I was not out to her when she told me this, (though I was generally out), because there was no real reason to talk to her about it, and it seemed sure to create a division.) As a gay person, 2004 felt horrifying because evangelicals were supporting marriage bans. I do not think we should take Mr. Kristof's word for it that evangelicals were becoming more tolerant - and I think it is somewhat strange that he mentioned Bush's gubernatorial campaign from 1994 (10 years earlier!) as proof, when clearly, something entirely different was happening in 2004. The atmosphere did not feel more tolerant to me, and the intolerance appeared to be coming from the religious right.

    1. What was your comparison point? Are you suggesting that 1994 was more tolerant or do you think it is inappropriate to compare against any past point in time rather than to a standard of complete tolerance? I think the turning point for improvement was Stonewall and the Gay Rights movement, and my comparison is what existed before that. In those terms, 2004 was much better, even in the South.

    2. Why does he need a comparison point? Why isn't the FACT anti-gay marriage amendment" ballot issues to get evangelicals to the polls in 2004 enough?

      Michael of Baltimore, if it's hatred that fires your friend's mother to oppose same-sex marriage, what is in when politicians play feign agreement for political expediency?

      If you can't respect the religious tenet behind opposition to gay marriage at least respect the fact that it's not stealthy, but is right out there you to engage.

There is opposition but it isn't generalized for those who have children, which is the socially significant factor. 94% of births to college-educated women occur in marriage, 57% of births to women with no college occur outside of marriage, 75% of births to black women are outside of marriage.

Yes, it makes a difference in policy as far as the way science is taught in public schools, but it makes very little if any difference in most policymaking including "politics and economics," which are two areas in which Gravy said he would not want someone of a particular faith making policy, Gravy goes on to indicate the beliefs are a measure of "stupidity" but they are not.

      One can make a much better argument against atheists creating policy, since the most fundamental ideas behind freedom, such as "all men are created equal" are spiritual assertions, nowhere to be found or proven in science and nature.

There are many geniuses who have adopted that faith and innumerable gullible, sub-80 IQ idiots who ridicule it.

      The Internet Gen Ed-degreed progressive crowd likes to ridicule it because they mistake understanding and adopting a fairly simple idea with overwhelming scientific evidence backing it up with "brilliance."

      Every hack low-IQ comic has a "What's up with the Christians?" schtick, intended to permit himself and his audience to thrill at their own impressiveness and savvy in being "in on" something the squares are too dumb to figure out.

Their goal is not to have a respectful debate of ideas between reasonable people, it is to successfully brand any and all opposition as completely taboo in the public sphere.

    And they are justified that they will be successful, largely as a result of the debate over race. Progressives won that battle by using the same tactics that you decry, and as a result they have made any deviation, no matter how tiny, from the orthodoxy that all humans are completely equal, no matter their ancestry, tantamount to thoughtcrime. That's their goal with the gay debate as well, and they have been wildly successful ignoring your advice to be reasonable.

    2. As a supplement, Bob, think of Kristof's change from 2004 to 2014 not in moral terms, but in tactical terms. I very much doubt that Kristof's fundamental belief as to the righteosness of his cause and the wickedness of the anti-gay marriage cause really changed over that ten year period. What changed was the feasibility of different tactics.

      Tactically, In 2004 it would have been insane for Kristof to go in full barrel with B-Bombs blazing. At that time the pro gay marriage position was a distinct minority one, and all the momentum appeared to be with the other side. At that point he had to advocate for understanding - to do anything more would have exposed his forces, so to speak, to great enemy fire at a time when they were outnumbered and vulnerable.

      In 2015, however, the face of the battlefield has completely changed. The anti-gays are now outnumbered and retreating - morale is very low. Now Kristof's side has the ability to deliver a knock out blow, and they are anxious to use it before the enemy can flee and somehow regroup.

    3. Poor majneb. He can't help it. He relied on Bob Somerby's honesty to try and make a point. Unfortnately, that is like relying on Brian Williams, to use a hot current example.

      Sez majneb: "Tactically, In 2004 it would have been insane for Kristof to go in full barrel with B-Bombs blazing."

      Said the tactically insane Kristof in 2004:

      "bigotry toward people based on their faith is just as repugnant as bigotry toward people based on their sexuality"

      I don't know if that qualifies as "full barrel" B-bombing, majneb, but it was certainly double barreled.

      But I don't excuse you due to being fooled by Somerby. Most of the shit on your shit-sandwich of a comment is yours alone.

  6. Why not tell us the "other side" on gay issues, and the "other side" on the question of fundamental issues based the color of one's skin -- or rather, the genes that produce a darker color so long as they originate in Africa. (The genes that produce a darker skin in Native Americans and their descendants in Latin America are different.)

    While you're at it, also tell us how someone with genes that came from Africa are supposed to feel about and react to proponents of "the other side" on whether they are equal to European Americans or not.

    1. My intention is not to debate the merits of either of these issues, but to show how they are analogous. Progressives certainly view them analogously, and thus feel justified in lobbing B-bombs at those they view as insufficiently pro-gay, just as they have long felt justified in lobbing B- or R-bombs at those they view as insufficiently pro-racial equality. And in fact, that strategy has worked brilliantly for the Left on racial matters, so contra Bob, why shouldn't the Left also feel justified in invoking it on gay matters?

      Delete
    2. Being unable to imagine the views of people who disagree strikes me as problematic, a kind of mental bigotry.

      The "other side" on issues of gay rights or racial equality is not based on the humanity of people (e.g., their genes) but based on how to decide specific issues, such as whether people should be married or whether they should be given preferential employment or admission to college. Those specific situations are always complicated and involve much more than whether someone believes in "equality" or "fairness." The differences of opinion arise from those details, which progressives seem to believe are clear cut. For example, based on "fairness," women should greatly outnumber men on all college campuses and Asian applicants should be the majority admitted at UC Berkeley because their grades and test scores are far higher than those of most other applicants. Is it fair to adjust those %s to achieve some idea of racial balance that does not recognize merit? Progressives ignore competing values that trouble conservatives. You may disagree about how to resolve that specific question, but you should be able to recognize that there is a valid "other side" that involves something other than knee-jerk racism.

      If you truly do not know what the "other side" is on various contentious issues, you are not talking with enough people outside your particular political bubble.

  8. I am old enough to remember that as long as he has been writing, Bob Somerby has not fundamentally changed. He is still a gigantic hypocrite. His views and tactics are the same. His skills have simply declined with age.

    He still conveniently leaves things out that counter his meme, all the while denouncing those he claim disappear things.

    Take for example. this screed against the "changed" Nicholas Kristof.

    What does Bob tell you?

    "Back then, Kristof preached patience and respect. Today, those people are bigots."

    Yes snarls Somerby, Kristof now throws the "B" word (bigotry) in the third paragraph. In 2004 he preached patience and respect.

    What does Bob leave out? Why the double barrelled "B" bomb Kristof dropped on his readers at the end of his "better" column in 2004:

    "And bigotry toward people based on their faith is just as repugnant as bigotry toward people based on their sexuality.

    There's more, but perhaps I'll save it until Somerby continues his jihad against Kristof.

    Kristof was preaching against bigotry then and now.

    Somerby preaches that liberals are lazy, dumb, disliked and immoral. I have heard those same words racists have preached by racists against blacks. People who preach that way are bigots. It is that simple.

    6. The point is not what Somerby does -- he is not a journalist. The point is how our media informs us (or doesn't).

We don't depend on Somerby for that, although I think he aids in that goal.

  10. Back when Kristof was different? Talk about waaaaay back.

    I'm old, too. I can remember when his obsession/cause of child prostitution in East Asia. After a while it began to seem the columnist protested too loudly. Not that he was guilty himself, but he seemed to think about child protestation an awful lot. I kept waiting for him to announce that he had, you know, adopted some of those girls in order to, you know, save them.

  11. THANKS TO DR BENEDICT FOR SOLVING MY PROBLEMS

    An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is Andy Sowers,i live in Australia,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife.so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice.

  18. Unimaginable and unbelievable. I am Tracy Jones from the United States and i have a good news to share to the entire world. Do you need your ex husband or lover urgently? I wanna tell you that you need not to worry because i have a good news for those out there that are faced or similar to such situation because there is always a hope and a solution to all problem. There is a great spell caster called Dr Eku who can really solve your problem. Getting my lover back is what i can't imagine but when I was losing Newton, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly but my Aunty told me about this spell caster who also helped her on the internet. I thought it won't work but i just tried to give this man a chance and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Two days later, my phone rang. Newton was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, the spell caster opened him up to know how much I loved and needed him. This Spell Casting isn’t brainwashing, but he opened up his eyes to know how much we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try him because he will help you and make things be the way it ought to be. If you have such problem or similar to this, please contact him on his email
    drekuperfectspells@yahoo.com and just visit DREKUPERFECTSPELLS.blogspot.com and see so many people testifying about his perfect work. thank you Dr Eku and may your gods ever reward you for your good deeds..

I have money in my pocket that is my own at last. (My compensation cheque came through I was told it was months away. I am living proof of what Dr Marvel can do. I thank you so much Dr Marvel for the wonderful thing you did in my relationship. I am so happy now. With your help we were both able to see and speak the truth to each other.

  22. My passion for love and life has made me to take to the internet to
    warn internet users particularly those in search of solution to their
    problems to beware of and avoid comments about spell caster that can
    use their magical power in helping you out with your problems. I don't
    want anyone to be fooled because i was a victim of this fraudsters
    who claimed to be spell casters. I am Wimberly William and i was having
    a difficult time in my relationship as my wife couldn't give birth to a
    child. Although my wife and i loved each other very much as it were.We kept on
    hoping and for 6years there weren't any sign of breakthrough .As days
    goes by,i will always weep because at that time i was really down.
    Even though my wife tried to always be by my side,only time would
    tell as we couldn't cope with pressure coming from friends and she had to leave
    me for another man. I was now left to face my problem alone even
    though my mom would always talk to me and console me on phone. Things
    went from bad to worse when i was sacked from the private organization
    i was working because been happily married was a criteria that was
    needed and that i was now lacking owing to my failure to have a child that has made my
    wife leave me for another man leaving me single. I kept on
    searching and hoping i would find a solution to my problem but there
    wasn't any coming. I contacted lots of spell caster as i saw them on
    the internet but all were scams as they demanded money from me
    frequently and nothing happened. i had to relocate from Texas city
    United state to Jamaica where my mom was residing and also because i
    became racially abused because of my color .I spent 4 months with my
    mom and together we kept on looking for solution still to no avail.
    There came a faithful day when i met my high school mate who knew i
    was happily married and living in Texas city United state with my
    wife and had to ask why i flew back to Jamaica. I explained my
    problem to her and with sincere desire in wanting my problems solved
    she led me to DR JAMIN ABAYOMI. Although i was doubtful but soon as i
    explained my problem to him,he laughed and gave me a maximum of
    72hours for my wife to come back and for she go give birth. I
    did all i was asked to do which included me traveling back to Texas
    city United state. I traveled back to Texas city united state,on my
    arrival during the early hours of the morning,my phone rang and guess
    who?it was my wife who called asking for my forgiveness and saying
    she was coming back home. She came few hours later and on her knees she
    pleaded for forgiveness. Although it was a tough decision for me to
    make because of all the pains i have been through. I love her and
    needed her back so i had no option but to forgive her. We sat together
    and while she was resting her head on my chest we had romantic
    conversation and talked about things that we have never spoken about
    and like husband and wife the urge came to have sex and we had sex for
    a very long time that day. The next day which was still within the
    72hours given by DOCTOR JAMIN ABAYOMI she felt something different in her
    body and immediately she went for a check up and to our greatest
    surprise,she was pregnant. How possible could this be but it happened
    and am very thankful also my skin color that made me racially abused
    was changed to the preferred and now we are now happily married again
    and no racially discrimination. All thanks to DR JAMIN ABAYOMI for his
    solution.
    ARE YOU FACED WITH SIMILAR PROBLEM OR ANY KIND OF PROBLEM.PLEASE KNOW
    THAT DR JAMIN ABAYOMI isn't on the internet so kindly contact him via

  27. When I married my husband I was already pregnant and so I didn't have a job. He had a really good job though so I was able to stay home and take care of our son when it was born. When we had our second child we moved to a bigger house, but then strange things started to happen. Things would fly off the walls and doors would slam at night. Our oldest son talked about seeing figures and hearing voices. We consulted a medium and they said the house was haunted. After living there about a year more with only minor occurrences we moved out. That was when the bad luck started to happen. Everything started to fail, with my husband's job, our money and our luck in general. I went back to the same medium and they told me that a spirit had followed me and placed a curse upon me for disturbing it and not being respectful in the previous house. He tried to remove it but was unable. The misfortune kept going on and getting more severe as I tried to search out someone to break the curse. But when I found Dr. Grea he finally did it. Things started turning around almost immediately after he cast the spell and have been great from there! This was really a miracle for us, Re_unifyexlove@outlook.com also visit his website page via: http://reunifyexlove.webs.com. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

  32. My name is Elizabeth Taylor from UK. I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is Dr iayaryi (driayaryi2012@hotmail.com) he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 4years. I really loved him, but his family was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told Dr iayaryi what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 8 days when i returned to UK, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is (driayaryi2012@hotmail.com)

  33. Greetings to all, i don't really think my name is necessary here because there are lots of fake spell casters out there and i just can't believe the level of scam going on here,i lost my Greg few months ago and did everything possible to get him back but proved abortive until a close friend of mine spoke to me about spell casting and gave me the email address of Dr. Ajala and i decided to give him a try and unbelievably to my surprise it actually worked and i can cheerfully announce to all out here that there are real spell casters but just outnumbered by the fake ones. Please try Dr. Ajala and i tell you there wont be regrets. Under 48 hour i got my Greg back and for me to get this good loving from my man then i think its worth it..his email is docalaja@aol.com

I know there are lots of women like me out there who have done so much to have back their Husband, I am here to tell you all to search no further because the answer is right here. I sincerely believe if there are up to five spell casters like DOCTOR CANDOVA this world would be a better place, I have seen people complaining on how fake spell castes promised to help them but couldn't but with DOCTOR CANDOVA I tell you your problem is solved already. My Husband and I had been apart for 3 YEARS and I couldn't bear without living without him, I have tried everything to have him back but nothing was working until I saw numerous testimonies about a spell caster call DOCTOR CANDOVA and how great his work is.

  38. I am married for 3 years..my husband has a short tempered, always mad at me, emotionally distant. He doesn't care about me, doesn't talk to me and he is more attached to this new lady who he claims they are just friends, and he most of the time chose the company of this new lady than me..He hide his phone activities..He betrayed me several times already..every time we fought he always threatened me to sell our house and divorce me..this was viscous cycle for 3 years, and all these conked out my feelings. And i always had this fear that this wasn't gonna keep us going until he finally told me it was over and that he wasn't ready to go on with me anymore.It wasn't easy after all the time he left and i couldn't just stand one more sleepless night alone in my life, so i was vulnerable and just needed to try whatever thing with prayers or magic. So i reached on to Priest Omar's website and i saw how he helped and reunited many marriages. I ordered a spell, and after 24 hours of his spell casting which was on 12TH OF JANUARY 2016, my ex husband who has not talked to me for almost 13 months called for us to be together again, in addition he was completely regretful for all his erroneous actions and he told me his life made sense only when he met me. This spell is 100% effective for me and for my husband. He's an amazing and powerful spell caster. Do contact him for similar issues on his Website: http://victorywhitemagicspell.webs.com and you can also call him on his Telephone: +1 863 274 3763.. Email: victorywhitemagicspell@outlook.com.
