God vs. Cappuccino

Virginians like God–at least, they’ve become fans on Facebook.

But if the social networking site is any indication, Virginians like their lattes more.

More state residents have become fans of Starbucks than God, according to Fan Page Analytics. The site lists the top 10 most fanned items by state or country. In Virginia, Starbucks has the most fans, followed by God.

The deity did beat out the dislike button, I need a vacation!!! and freeze pops.

In several states, God is the most popular.

And thanks to The Birmingham News for introducing me to the site. Their story on football coach Nick Saban beating God in fans is a great read.
