Bible Thumpin’

The numbers agree: Americans love America more than the Bible.

That’s the only lesson to draw from Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s trouncing of last week’s winner, Noah. Cap made $96 million, while the ark dude raked in a measly $17 million. In fact, Noah was almost passed by Divergent, which finished in third with $13 million.

God’s Not Dead finished fourth with $7.7 million while The Grand Budapest Hotel made $6.3 million.

Once again, if it’s not clear, here’s the ranking of stuff Americans like:

  1. America
  2. The Bible
  3. Women shooting arrows
  4. Kevin Sorbo
  5. Twee shit

The box office is an instructive place.
