CNN’s Wolf Blitzer tells atheist tornado survivor: ‘You gotta thank the Lord’
With the number of atheists continuing to rise, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday afternoon learned the danger of assuming on live television that his interviewee is a Christian.
“I guess, you gotta thank the Lord, right?” he told the survivor of a deadly tornado that ripped through Oklahoma. “Do you thank the Lord?”
“I — I’m actually an atheist,” the woman politely responded.
“Oh, you are? Alright,” Blitzer replied.
The woman, however, handled the embarrassing situation with grace.
“We are here, and I don’t blame anybody for thanking the Lord,” she told Blitzer.
