May 21 (UPI) -- CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer laughed off an awkward moment with an Oklahoma tornado victim named Rebecca on Tuesday. When Blitzer asked if Rebecca "thanked the Lord" for her family's survival, she admitted, "I'm actually an atheist."
The two laughed off Blitzer's assumption and Rebecca added, "We are here, and you know, I don't blame anyone for thanking the Lord."
