Now, despite being an atheist, I'm not using this video as some sort of ammunition to belittle religious people. Pray for the Oklahoma tornado victims if you want to, who am I to judge? But I just think it's pretty damn funny how visibly surprised Wolf Blitzer gets when he interviews a survivor of the tornado, saying "I guess you gotta thank the Lord, you gotta thank the Lord right?" expecting her to nod accordingly and voice her thanks to God.
But nope, she just kinda hesitates a bit before saying "....I'm actually an atheist..." Awkward but hilarious all the same. I think that here in the US religion is this thing people are just assumed to believe in, and when someone deviates from that norm, it alienates the religious in ways they just aren't used to be alienated in, and in some ways makes them look...well, weird. I realize that makes me sound like a condescending prick but I only speak from experience. When I went from 15 years of Catholic school and having morning and afternoon prayer to having no prayer whatsoever in college, it made me feel a bit odd to have broken from that routine. Anyways, here's the video.
