CNNs Wolf Blitzer Asks Atheist Okla. Tornado Survivor If She Thanked the Lord

(CNN)

It was likely the first time Rebecca had truly laughed since she and her 19-month-old son, Anders, survived the massive tornado that destroyed much of Moore, Okla. But she couldn’t help but giggle after CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked her if she “thanked the lord” for the life-saving decision she made to leave her house ahead of the twister.

“I’m actually an atheist,” she replied, laughing off the question.

Blitzer too laughed at his innocent gaffe, telling Amanda that she “made the right call.”

The mother also expressed joy that she and her son are OK and said she doesn’t blame anyone who does thank the Lord after the horrific natural disaster.
