Atheists unite behind Kickstarter campaign to support victim of Oklahoma tornado

When CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked atheist mom Rebecca Vitsmun if she thanked the lord that she survived the tornado that ripped through Moore, Okla., foul-mouthed misanthrope Doug Stanhope had an idea: unite the atheist community and support this particular victim.

Through a Kickstarter campaign, Stanhope has raised more than $100,000 to help the Vitsmun family “get out of hell free.”

Host Jamila Bey spoke with Stanhope, who has built a career on knocking on all things sacred, to discuss the campaign and how he is proud of proving that atheists can be remarkably kind, generous and caring.
