Wolf Blitzer to Atheist: Thank God, Right?

by at . Comments

Oh, CNN. You really can't get anything right, can you?

Wolf Blitzer interviewed an Oklahoma tornado survivor named Rebecca Vitsmun yesterday outside the destroyed home she and her young son abandoned at the last second and asking her:

"You've gotta thank the Lord, right? Do you thank the Lord for that split-second decision?"

Vitsmun hesitated, smile and replied: "I'm actually an atheist."

The two then shared a laugh over the awkward exchange, with Vitsmun saving the CNN reporter and concluding: "We are here, and I don't blame anyone for thanking the Lord."

You know.... it was an honest mistake... but I think its awesome that both of them weren't negative about the enitre thing. To each their own, there has been a movement where everyone wants to cram their beliefs down eachothers throats... that .... thats annoying. Respect everyons beliefs ... and if we don't see eye to eye.. it is what it is.
