Stormy weather

Atheists, assemble!

Gazette staff
After her house was destroyed in the May 20 tornado, Rebecca Vitsmun bravely ditched the rules of Bible Belt conversation when CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer asked her in a live interview if she “thanked the Lord” for having survived. Vitsmun hesitated before answering that she’s actually an atheist. That declaration prompted atheists everywhere to raise money for her, showing that Christian charity can be just plain charity.

CFN

Gazette staff

And, yes, while there’s no denying that much of the Sooner State’s population is devout, every so often a TV correspondent will stumble across an Okie who hasn’t gotten the memo. That’s what happened last week when CNN’s Wolf Blitzer did a live TV interview with a woman whose family survived the May 20 tornado.
