Asked by Wolf Blitzer if She Thanked God for Surviving the Tornado, Oklahoma Woman Responds: ‘I’m Actually An Atheist’

On today’s Situation Room on CNN, Wolf Blitzer interviewed a woman named Rebecca Vitsmun whose family survived the Oklahoma tornado. At one point yesterday, her husband was driving home and worried that something might have happened to Rebecca and their 19-month-old son Anders, but there was no reason to worry; Rebecca left the house as soon as she heard the weather was getting really bad and everyone is safe. Their house may be in ruins, but their family is intact.

Things got a little awkward at the end of the interview, though, when Blitzer asked her if she thanked God that she left her house in time:

Blitzer: Well, you’re blessed. Brian, your husband, is blessed. Anders is blessed… and I guess you gotta thank the Lord, right? Do you thank the Lord? For that split-second decision?

Vitsmun: I… I… I’m… I’m actually an atheist… [Laughs]

Blitzer: Oh, you are! [Laughs] But you made the right call!

Vitsmun: Yeah, yep. We are here! And, you know, I don’t blame anybody for thanking the Lord.

Blitzer: Of course not.

Way to represent, Rebecca :)
