Charles Ramsey Tells Anderson Cooper To Give Reward For Missing Girls To Them, Because He Has A Paycheck




So I am sure we have all been following the story out of Ohio about the three missing girls found, and of course Mr. Ramsey who helped rescue them. His personality has given us all a few laughs, but in his latest interview Mr. Ramsey sets an example!

When told by Anderson that the FBI had a reward for finding the women, Mr. Ramsey responded by saying, ” I tell you what you do, you give it to them. Because if folks been following this case since last night, and they been following me since last night you know I got a job anyway.” He then proceeds to pull his paycheck out of his pocket. “Just went and picked it up, paycheck.” he then says ” So yea, take that reward and give it to them.”

You Mr. Ramsey, are a true role model, and I would love to sit and have a few ribs and beers with you someday!


Here is the interview.

    • Let’s leave religion out of this and just say thanks to the man for being a hero. I sincerely doubt belief in an invisible man who lives in the sky had something to do with this. How about we just call him hero and thank him for being humane?

      • Michael, if she chooses to give God the Glory because this man has a heart, than she is certainly entitled to. just because you don’t believe in God, doesn’t mean others need to leave Him out of their wording. make your own post not mentioning God, but don’t belittle hers.

        • Thank you, Hillary. Michael, my reasoning for thanking Mr. Ramsey for being a Christian was two-fold: Praise for the “invisible man” who is right here amongst us, and in reference to Mr. Raysey’s own alignment and acknowledgement in the interview. You should watch, it’s really touching.

          • Well, one shouldn’t impose their personal religion onto this man. One doesn’t know necessarily if he is Atheist, Muslim, or Pagan. Why assume he is Christian for doing a good deed. Why feel the need to point it out? He is a man and regardless of his beliefs he did a good deed as a HUMAN.

          • I did my best to save another’s life as an atheist. God had absolutely nothing to do with it. If he does exist he’s a fuck for allowing this to happen in the first place and not doing a thing for 10 years.

        • If I claimed that an imaginary friend of mine was responsible for Charles Ramsey being a hero people would think I was insane. A belief in the Christian god is no less insane than that. Am I so wrong for saying that Mr. Ramsey is the only one who should be thanked for his actions and not someone’s imaginary friend?

          • i understand what u r saying. and it does make sense. i dont fault u. as a Christian we are to give God the Glory and give thanks in all circumstances. u can believe what u want, and so can Christians… dont fault me or anyone else just because u disagree. thats all.

        • …you Go girl!! Our biggest problem right now is that we’ve forgotten our roots, a nation formed under God. It’s our liberal movement away from God that is causing all of our present day problems. I’d take this man for a neighbor anyday!

          • I’m not an american and I know your roots better than you. I know that your “In God We Trust” has almost 60 years (much more recent than your country) and your Constitution (which I admire) doesn’t even have mention of God (

            Wikipedia notes that “In God We Trust” is the national motto of the United States of America. It was so designated by an act of Congress in 1956 and officially supersedes “E Pluribus Unum” (Out of Many, One) according to United States Code, Title 36, Section 302. President Eisenhower signed the resolution into law on 30 July 1956. “E Pluribus Unum” is much more appealing than your “In God We Trust”.

          • brenda may not be a Christian. why r u assuming she is? what clues gave u that idea. bottom line, if u cant judge a persons heart. christians get irritated just like every other human being. christians are not perfect and have never claimed to be. so don’t judge them. that said, i will be praying you come to know Jesus before you die. and i AM a Christian and proud of my relationship with Christ, and OUR God almighty who died for YOU and for me!

        • this message is for michael… your ways r not Gods ways. He has a reason why he is allowing this to happen. He has full power. but yes, He allows bad things to happen so people can learn to not depend on themselves, but rather people will learn to depend on Him. thats what he desires from us. our submission, and our hearts. He changes the world, NOT us. however the world is messed up today because people think they can take God out of the equation and run things/their own lives themselves. people “can” live life without God, and its obvious today with the dysfunction of our world and society that people do live life absent of the One who created them. which is why our country and the world has gone to crap. Satan rules the world now and that is part of Gods master plan(as per the Bible) and its so very obvious.

          • So god allows women to be kidnapped and raped for 10 years to allow them to learn to depend on him? If I told you that I was going to kidnap and rape 3 women so that they would learn to depend on me, you would think I was the most wicked person in the world, why does god get a free pass. The reason our country has gone to shit is because people like you don’t take personal responsibility for your own actions, instead relying on a myth to make you feel comfortable in your cognitive dissonance. If god is all good, then evil cannot exist. evil does exist, so if god exists he is most certainly is evil. You people that think god does bad things in the name of good are wholly wicked people and deserve no respect from anyone.

          • anenlightenedhuman: go here to learn more:

            i think whats worse than people not taking ownership of their actions, is people blaming God for the choices of humans. remember, humans think they can rule themselves. so they do, and they make aweful, horrific choices. which happened in this case. God was/is always with those girls. but they were a result of bad peoples actions. God gives people(even bad people) free will.

          • anenlightenedhuman: RE: Satan

            He is called, “the ruler of this world” at John 12:31, 14:30, &, 16:11 ;

            He is called: “the god of this system of things”, in 2 Corinthians 4:4 ;

            At 1 John 5:19, God’s Word says that, “the whole world is lying in the [power of the] wicked one”.

          • lastly, God doesn’t create or cause bad things. i would love to have a theological discussion with you, but before i do, educate yourself on what Christians do believe in and why we believe it before making accusation on what you “think” we believe. just read what i have posted including links. u may learn some really valuable info. God will never be the enemy, but Satan will always be the enemy and the cause of ALL evil.

            for u to think or believe otherwise is because satan is deceptive and manipulative. he has convinced you to shun God and that u don’t need him. its the work of the devil- the one who rules the world.

          • “God” is simply put a mythological deity who’s only proof of existence is a book written by people roughly 2,000 years ago. Until empirical evidence of this god is proven, he only exists in works of fiction and the minds of insane people.

            Worshiping a coffee maker and giving praise to that would be more logical. At least I can see the coffee maker and I’m fairly that a coffee maker has helped most of us through our roughest days while clearing our minds of fog, as it surely has for Charles Ramsey. All praise to Mr. Coffee and the House of Maxwell!

          • Without even getting into how you think you know what your god thinks, How can you possibly claim that god does not create or cause bad things when you yourself claimed that it was part of gods plan that these women be taken and raped so that they may learn something from it. Are you seriously suggesting that the kidnap and rape of women is a good thing. Perhaps it is you who should educate yourself on what Christians believe. I know what they believe, I used to be one. You cannot use the bible to prove your religion is true because the bible says it is, that is circular reasoning. I know for a fact that you think you know what your god thinks because…are you ready for this…you are your god. I don’t mean in the sense that we are gods or in the solipsistic sense either. I mean that you project what you think your god is, because it is you who decide what is right and wrong…not any deity. It is you who feels rejected when someone denounces your god, it is you who believes that evil things are caused by some cosmic agent, it is you…You are the master of your life, not any god. So, how can you hold so many conflicting views while at the same time claiming divine providence…because you are projecting. your god is the most absurd character ever created by man. He is a maniacal sociopath devoid of humanity and empathy. Your god cannot be all good while also letting bad things happen – that is illogical. I am better than your god and I think you are too and I can prove it. I am better than your god, because if I had the power to change things for good I would do it. Your god just sits back and lets imperfect people do bed things to other people and then punishes them for his own mistakes. Do you beat your children when you make a mistake? than why does god? GOD DOES NOT EXIST>

          • When someone presents an idea to you that opposes your current worldview, you immediately behave as though you have an intellectual high ground over that person and their idea. That is a natural reaction for most people. When people have an argument or debate over these things; They aren’t debating at all. They are taking turns belittling each other and using fallacious argument techniques to discredit and slander each other and each others beliefs. This is what most discussions devolve into. Neither side is actually interested in learning about the other sides viewpoint. Instead they wish to mock each other because they feel superior to one another for coming to a different conclusion about the subject.

          • Mr Daryawesh, agreeing to an established insanity isn’t healthy. I don’t mind people throwing their God (be it Christian or Muslim or Jewish or whatever) into things, but when they’re trying to distort the fabric of reality in its many aspects (like creationism trying to be taught as science, or attempts at categorizing gay marriage as an abomination because of religious scripture, it’s pitiful) they’re asking to be slapped in the head and told to settle down since their religion should have no power outside their respective houses of worship, which should not be places where you decide the fate of millions.

      • If I’m wrong, no big deal, I’ve lived a God-loving life. If you are wrong, Michael, its an eternity of regret for turning your back on someone who is more than a man in the sky. I just can’t fathom all that is, was and ever will be happened when two rocks smashed together. One must not be able to look very deep to believe that we owe our existence to evolutional happenstance and Darwinism. I don’t and I’m not alone.

        • Fallacious logic at best, You obviously pray, you probably go to church at least once a week for about an hour, in other words you lose time that could be better spent on something more productive. And if I am wrong and god exist then logically he would be evil and I’d rather spend eternity in whatever hell he has prepared for me than subjugate myself to his massmurdering raping torturing childish whim of the moment…

        • That is Blaise Pascals wager and it is a weak argument. Just because you can’t fathom all that is, was and ever will be, does not mean it is unfathomable. I would presume that your god has respect for intellectual honesty and moral courage. I think that if he really existed he would look with more favor on some who made an honest profession of unbelief than on someone who exceeded to believe in him in the hope of a handout.

          • God also teaches us not to throw pearls before swine… He teaches that if you believe and ask for it you will get it, but if not you will get nothing because he doesnt really owe you anything. If you dont give gratitute you wont get anything back. If you ask for egoistic things you wont receive anything because you were only thinking about yourself, and a great reason the world looks like it does today. people are not asking for salvation or help, not being grateful for life or having any kind of respect for trying to learn or just leaving insult out of the equation. Just minor understanding, less insult and a personality of trying to understand other human beings is great. End thing is you are totally right, God is ‘horrible’ according to you, I think he’s being just about the world because he is giving them another chance and a new life, people forget this because they dont believe it or doesnt try to figure the puzzle out. so much more easy to complain… Im not throwing more pearls before swine. Either you grow as a person or you dont, whatever direction that is. Respect and understanding and not blaming everyone else for our own problems and shortcomings

        • Allow me, if I may, to point out some of the things that your god has asked of you that I’m sure you’d never be tempted to do Rod. Before I do that though, I’ll address your statement about religion and science. I’m sure that you’d be quick to say that Zeus or Odin are pure mythology even thought they’re “kings of the gods”. They have books written about them and people worship them and have worshiped them for long before Christianity came about. Your god has books written about him and worshipers too. If they’re mythological fiction then your god is too.

          As for you not grasping the concept of evolution and the big bang, that’s a little sad as any elementary school science book explains them both quite clearly. Your lack of an understanding of science doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen, it just means that you have an aversion to learning about it.

          As for being a good Christian, if you are than I hope you’ll be able to say honestly that you live by all of your god’s rules including these ones. 🙂

          Round haircuts. See you in Hell, Beatles… and/or kids with bowl cuts, surfer cuts or (my favorite) butt cuts. Leviticus 19:27 reads “You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard.”

          Football. At least, the pure version of football, where you play with a pigskin. The modern synthetic footballs are ugly and slippery anyways. Leviticus 11:8, which is discussing pigs, reads “You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you.”

          And you’re doubly breaking that if you wake up, eat some sausage then go throw around the football. Or go to the county fair and enter a greased pig catching contest.

          Fortune telling. Before you call a 900 number (do people still call 900 numbers, by the way?), read your horoscope or crack open a fortune cookie, realize you’re in huge trouble if you do.

          Leviticus 19:31 reads “Do not turn to mediums or spiritists; do not seek them out to be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.” The penalty for that? Check Leviticus 20:6: “As for the person who turns to mediums and to spiritists, to play the harlot after them, I will also set My face against that person and will cut him off from among his people.”

          Seems like a lifetime of exile is a pretty harsh penalty for talking to Zoltar.

          Pulling out. The Bible doesn’t get too much into birth control… it’s clearly pro-populating but, back when it was written, no one really anticipated the condom or the sponge, so those don’t get specific bans.

          But… pulling out does. One of the most famous sexual-oriented Bible verses… the one that’s used as anti-masturbation rhetoric… is actually anti-pulling out.

          It’s Genesis 38:9-10: “Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother’s wife, he wasted his seed on the ground in order not to give offspring to his brother. But what he did was displeasing in the sight of the Lord; so He took his life also.”

          Yep — pull out and get smote. That’s harsh.

          Tattoos. No tattoos. Leviticus 19:28 reads, “You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord.”

          Not even a little butterfly on your ankle. Or Thug Life across your abdomen. Or even, fittingly enough, a cross.

          Polyester, or any other fabric blends. The Bible doesn’t want you to wear polyester. Not just because it looks cheap. It’s sinfully unnatural.

          Leviticus 19:19 reads, “You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together.”

          Check the tag on your shirt right now. Didn’t realize you were mid-sin at this exact second, did you? (Unless you checked the tag by rolling off your neighbor’s wife while you two were having anal sex in the middle of robbing a blind guy. Then your Lycra-spandex blend is really the least of your problems.)

          Divorce. The Bible is very clear on this one: No divorcing. You can’t do it. Because when you marry someone, according to Mark 10:8, you “are no longer two, but one flesh.” And, Mark 10:9 reads, “What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”

          Mark gets even more hardcore about it a few verses later, in Mark 10:11-12, “And He said to them, ‘Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her; and if she herself divorces her husband and marries another man, she is committing adultery.'”

          Letting people without testicles into church. Whether you’ve been castrated or lost one or two balls to cancer isn’t important. The Bible doesn’t get that specific. It just says you can’t pray.

          Deuteronomy 23:1 reads (this is the God’s Word translation, which spells it out better), “A man whose testicles are crushed or whose penis is cut off may never join the assembly of the Lord.”

          Oh, and the next verse says that if you’re a bastard, the child of a bastard… or even have a great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandchild of a bastard, you can’t come to church or synagogue either. Deuteronomy 23:2 reads, “No one of illegitimate birth shall enter the assembly of the Lord; none of his descendants, even to the tenth generation, shall enter the assembly of the Lord.”

          Wearing gold. 1 Timothy 2:9 doesn’t like your gold necklace at all. Or your pearl necklace. Or any clothes you’re wearing that you didn’t get from Forever 21, Old Navy or H&M.

          “Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments.”

          Lobster, shrimp and clam chowder: All banned.
          Shellfish. Leviticus 11:10 reads, “But whatever is in the seas and in the rivers that does not have fins and scales among all the teeming life of the water, and among all the living creatures that are in the water, they are detestable things to you.” And shellfish is right in that wheelhouse.

          Leviticus 11 bans a TON of animals from being eaten (it’s THE basis for Kosher law); beyond shellfish and pig, it also says you can’t eat camel, rock badger, rabbit, eagle, vulture, buzzard, falcon, raven, crow, ostrich, owl, seagull, hawk, pelican, stork, heron, bat, winged insects that walk on four legs unless they have joints to jump with like grasshoppers (?), bear, mole, mouse, lizard, gecko, crocodile, chameleon and snail.

          Sorry if that totally ruins your plans to go to a rock badger eat-off this weekend.

          Your wife defending your life in a fight by grabbing your attacker’s genitals. No joke. Deuteronomy actually devotes two verses to this exact scenario: Deuteronomy 25:11-12.

          “If two men, a man and his countryman, are struggling together, and the wife of one comes near to deliver her husband from the hand of the one who is striking him, and puts out her hand and seizes his genitals, then you shall cut off her hand; you shall not show pity.”

          That’s impossible to misinterpret. Ladies, if your husband is getting mugged, make sure to kick the mugger in the pills. Do not do the grip and squeeze (no matter what “Miss Congeniality” might advise). Or your hand needs to be cut off.

          • Wow, Michael, for someone who doesn’t believe in God, you apparently care quite a lot about him. Whether in love or hate, you’re totally revolving around him 😉

          • Ray, I’m glad you enjoyed it.

            Kat, I was a Christian for 20 years. Keyword there is “was”. I don’t care about god, but I’m educated enough to see the falsies in religion.

          • That is a long post, Michael. My eyes glazed right over it after about the 5th paragraph. Quite a long time for forum standards to be revolving around any topic, let alone God. This isn’t the time or place for 20 years of hatred to come boiling out. That’s between you and God. Not for total strangers on the internet who are simply thanking a man for doing a kind deed. You’re not proving anything to anyone, but if it’s therapy for you, try journaling instead. You’re giving atheists a bad name 😉

          • In honesty, all of this spawned from me saying that we should thank Charles Ramsey for being a hero instead of thanking a god for the actions of a fellow human being.

            This isn’t 20 years of hatred. This is me saying to thank the man for what he did instead of thanking a character from a book. People can take away from it what they want, but my message about the original post I commented on stays the same.

            By the way, if your eyes gazed over on my post I’m guessing you didn’t read the Bible too. I mean that’s way longer than anything I wrote.

    • I don’t recall hearing about him launching a Crusade and murdering millions of innocents, or ignoring Nazi war crimes and hiding stolen Nazi gold, or diddling little boys. So leave your “Christian” nonsense out of this. He was a human. A decent human being. A hero.

  1. at the end he said it’d be a different interview if i known that. i’d be facing triple life. if i woulda know that, i’d be facing triple life as well

  2. Gives me hope for America yet. It brought tears to my eyes to see that there are still unselfish and caring people out there who care less about improving their own situations and more about the misfortunes of others. Those women deserve and need that money to make a fresh start.

        • how in any way is it a shame for any person to have hope for america?? this is truely inspirational that this man is being unselfish and having compassion, but guiltyspark cannot have hope for america…

        • So you’d rather place your hope in a fictional being, often used to oppress people, and to start wars and genocide? I’d say belief in “God” is pretty messed up as well.

          • Does it really matter what you have hope for? Simply by saying you have hope for something means that you are aware of it’s faults and you HOPE for it’s improvement. To say you have hope IN God and that you have hope FOR america are two entirely different things and they are not mutually exclusive.

          • Michael, what is your major malfunction? The guy being interviewed is a CHRISTIAN. Do you see him causing any war or genocide? Your logic is FAIL!

      • Sorry that you feel that way but I work in healthcare and I see what people do to each other and what the government is doing to us in regards to healthcare, it has made me cynical.

  3. I know that I don’t have a great deal in common with Mr. Ramsey but I would like to shake his hand, in a few short minutes he reminded all of us that there are somethings that will unite us all. Well done sir.

  4. What a heroic job!!! A job done for the ultimate goodness of life existence for people in great need, and yet not expecting anything in return. Only to render what is good, godly, right and for the safety of others. That is truly an American spirit. God bless you Mr. Ramsey and hopefully more people will be inspired to do what is just and right because of your example.

  5. Can’t say enough good to praise this man. He’s one Hell of a man, & needs to be recognized nationally for his act of compassion & generosity.

  6. In the last few years I have become one of those people who “Re-Post” Missing Persons fliers on my Facebook page, even if they’re from distant states – San Diego is a haven for runaways and abductors alike – I have frequently passed the location where Elizabeth Smart had reportedly lived during her kidnapping – wondering if I ever saw her there and had no idea.

    I’m not sure what’s going on in this interview with the seemingly dramatic difference in appearance of the backyard where they’re filming and the shots of the front of the homes – seems like completely different neighborhoods but that’s of little importance.

    This man if funny as all get out, the dramatic pauses and looks he gave Cooper – Priceless! Good for you Mr. Ramsey, I’d like to buy you another Big Mac, I’m sure yours was cold by the time this ended!

    • Counsciously, I couldn’t help but think about the background differences, as well. They are dramatic. I wonder if the show sought out a more appealing location that was possibly nearby. This looks like someones backyard.

  7. I don’t think i heard mr Ramsey mention anything about being a Christian in any of his interviews. Hopefully he is though, or he’s doomed to spend an eternity in hell… no matter how good of a person he is! Right ladies? If he’s a Muslim, I doubt he’d appriciate you chalking up his good nature to being a Chritian. Just saying.

    • Hahaha, he actually did mention being a Christian in his interviews, bud.

      Don’t give other nonbelievers or those of a different faith a bad name by trying to ascribe his motives to suit your beliefs…
      This is coming from an atheist.

  8. I don’t think i heard mr Ramsey mention anything about being a Christian in any of his interviews. Hopefully he is though, or he’s doomed to spend an eternity in hell… no matter how good of a person he is! Right ladies? If he’s a Muslim, I doubt he’d appriciate you chalking up his good nature to being a Chritian. Just saying.

    • On Tuesday, Ramsey appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper: 360, where he said if there is any reward money, he wants it to go to the victims. Asked if he considers himself a hero, he said simply: “I’m a Christian. I’m an American.”

  9. AMEN!! Folks may not believe it now but when the Angel of death calls their number they will be pleading for mercy and will not be heard. Eternity is forever and never ending. See if you can wrap your feeble mind around that.

  10. Seriously people!?!? This is hardly the time or place to fight over the existence of God. The whole conversation went from thanking this man to you all blasting each other over beliefs. Grow up and be as unselfish as the man this discussion was ment to be about!!

    • How Dare You, Sir! This is the internet! If i wish to entertain myself; by proving im dumber than the words falling out my mouth, to ppl i have never even met before, i will! : D

    • Thank you, Justin. The Internet is full of trolls. No one is allowed to simply be nice anymore without it resulting in a land war in Asia, the interruption of the space-time continuum, another Ice Age, and it’s all George W. Bush’s fault. And God’s. And someone can “prove” the Jesus was a homosexual. All because a man was a good Samaritan, oops, I mean “nice” (silly biblical idioms popping up all over the place from our infernal Western society’s cultural roots, and semantics, and OMG political correctness! . . . What, wait, OM”G”? The “G” stands for God. Okay, so sue me . . . crap! “Sue.” Jewish origins . . . grrrr). Forget language, I couldn’t even begin to communicate with you telepathically in images, either, if such a thing were an ability, because not only does God seem to be underwritten in language, he’s underwritten in our very consciousnesses, too. Sorry guys, legalism doesn’t prove or disprove anything, especially matters of faith. That’s like talking apples and oranges.

      Can’t we just thank an empathic human being for having a heart and doing a nice thing? And if he’s Christian, then he’s Christian; he stated that he’s a Christian. That’s a fact; watch the video. He also has a mouth on him, too, but that’s not the point of being a Christian. It’s not about legalism or being perfect or being right. We’re all sinners. It’s about relationships. It’s not that hard, really. Christians don’t live by the Law of Moses, because Christ already came to fulfill the law. Hence the relationship thing. I’d take this man out for lunch any day. You can tell he’s a good guy. Doesn’t have anything to prove.

      BTW: Him stating that he’s Christian, in conjunction with him insisting the reward money to those victims and not to himself (the good deed), THAT is an example of what “giving the Glory to God” means for Christians. It’s a statement of humility. In other words, just like he doesn’t wish to take the money, he also doesn’t wish to take the credit for his kind deed. An act of faith. Nothing to “prove” in that. Being a Christian and wanting those victims to have the reward money is just what he stated. Regardless of belief system, his “positive” act “positively” reflects on Christians.
