Cap’n Sully: Why for didn’t you mention God?

I guess that Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger saved so many lives just isn’t good enough for some holier-than-thous.

This is a real letter, posted online this week, that was written to the Muskegon Chronicle in Michigan.

On the Feb. 8 “60 Minutes” program, we were captivated while viewing the Katie Couric interview of the crew and passengers of Flight 1549.

However, we were struck there was not one mention of God, who directs pilots of planes and secures the safety of passengers.

We have written CBS and asked them for more realistic programming. Help protect our freedoms. Write CBS about this.
