CNN's Wolf Blitzer Asks Atheist Tornado Survivor, "Do You Thank the Lord?"

Not everyone in the Bible Belt is turning to a higher power in the wake of this week's tornadoes.

While interviewing a survivor of the Moore, Okla., tornadoes, CNN's Wolf Blitzer informed her of how blessed she and her family are, before presumptuously asking, "You've gotta thank the Lord, right? Do you thank the Lord for that split-second decision?"

Rebecca Vitsmun politely grinned and explained, "I'm actually an atheist."

Wolf seemed a bit taken aback in the moment, and while some have slammed the interview as awkward, it's actually not at all. Rebecca handled the situation better than most would and even offered Blitzer an out, continuing, "We are here and I don't blame anyone for thanking the Lord."

Plus, the real star of the interview was her adorable baby son Brian.

Alternately, Barbara Garcia brought viewers to tears when she reunited with her beloved dog live on air, claiming that her God had answered her prayers. To each their own.
