Pope Francis Named Time Person of the Year

Sorry, Miley Cyrus. You made a valiant effort.

Despite this controversial singer actually leading online voting for Time Person of the Year (thanks to some hacking), the magazine has selected another individual as the recipient of its annual honor...

POPE FRANCIS!

Time Person of the Year

Why did Time select His Holiness?

“In his nine months in office, he has placed himself at the very center of the central conversations of our time: about wealth and poverty, fairness and justice, transparency, modernity, globalization, the role of women, the nature of marriage, the temptations of power,” editors write in the issue, which hits newsstands on Friday.

Many do consider Francis an especially progressive pontiff.

He has told the Catholic church to end its obsession with abortion and homosexuality. He has said he cannot judge the gay lifestyle. Heck, he's posed for a selfie!

Time cites the Pope's “focus on compassion, along with a general aura of merriment not always associated with princes of the church" that "has made Francis something of a rock star.”

NSA leaker Edward Snowden finished second.

Do you agree with this choice? Should Pope Francis be Time Person of the Year?

They picked Pope Frances because he deserved it over the others. It makes their magazine respectable, whereas if they had chosen Miley they would be a laughing stock.
