Instead of asking if she thanked the lord, a real journalist would've asked if she BLAMED the lord.

I haven't read the any theist news or postings justifying the disaster, but I am sure it would read something like this "God is punishing the US because of our immorality and chose to spare a few. And he had to do this because he loves us. Amen"  I am not trying to sarcastic either,

Rebecca is brave in saying that she is an Atheist on national TV. I am not sure I would, especially after all the media fall out.  I did read that Glenn Beck said that it was all a set up. http://www.salon.com/2013/05/23/glenn_beck_cnn_interview_with_atheist_tornado_survivor_was_a_setup/

Thank you lord for only killing 30 people in {insert event here}.

I have been thinking. Instead of the Day of Reason, the better response to the national day of prayer is the 'national day of close your piehole and actually do something'.

 I enjoyed Ricky Gervais' tweet. After a long line of celebrities tweeting to the effect that they were "Praying for Oklahoma.", he responded with something like "And I only gave money! I feel such a fool."

Don't you want to see that exchange at least once?

Reporter:  Do you thank the Lord that you and your daughter survived?
Survivor:  I do!  I thank the Lord God for giving me the inspiration to go to the cellar!! Praise be!
Reporter:  So why do you think the Lord killed your mother?

That was the part I never liked about saying that.
So you survived because god intervened. What does that say about all
those who didn't survive?
You can't have it both ways.
