It’s not news that U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, doesn’t believe in manmade climate change. It’s not news that Oklahoma is smack dab in Tornado Alley.

Atheists, assemble!


CFN

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.

Booking it to Moore

Residents of a Texas retirement community contribute to a local book drive for Moore schoolchildren.


News

Molly Evans
Residents of a senior living community in East Texas were deeply touched by news reports of the May 20 tornado that devastated Moore. The seniors — some of them retired teachers, some grandparents and great-grandparents — were especially concerned about the young students of Plaza Towers and Briarwood, the two elementary schools demolished by that EF5 twister.
