Wolf Blitzer Asks Tornado Survivor If She Thanked the Lord; Tells Him She’s an Atheist
There was a moment of levity in Oklahoma Tuesday when CNN host Wolf Blitzer, concluding an interview with a woman named Rebecca and her 19-month-old son Anders who survived the devastating tornado, asked her if she thanked the Lord for a decision that saved her life.

Rebecca said she decided to leave her house with Anders, a fateful move as it was later destroyed by the tornado. She returned after it hit to see her husband Brian searching the remains of the home for her and their son, leading to a tearful reunion.
I heard about this story this morning, and I love seeing this. I have to say that her awkwardness in being asked the question was obvious, but she was honest and spoke how she truly feels. That is brave, so often Atheists put in to that situation will simply go along with what is being said to not rock the boat. Bravo to this woman!
