London's The Times and the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury have nominated Pope Francis as their Person of the Year 2013. Anyone got alternative nominations?

I humbly nominate myself.  I can't think of a person more deserving.

Pope Francis works for me, best bishop to come along in a while IMO. :police:

Move it to Politics?
Why should the Person of the Year be someone from the realm of politics? I don't have anyone specific in mind, but certainly in years gone by we could have nominated people like Bill Gates, Neil Armstrong, etc.. Of course, there's also Nelson Mandela, but he likely had that honour in a past year.

The person who had the biggest impact on me in 2013 was Zina Lahr.  Ok, I suppose it was an ideal that had the impact, and most likely it was one that was somewhat of my own making. Nonetheless, she was the right person at the right time.

I gave this nomination a one year of a  thought,  and for some reason I also came to your conclusion TheTrisagion :p Don't ask how but I know that God is great!

Nothing against the Pope, but he's the Pope; he's supposed to be a great man.  But this little girl stood up to bullies with guns simply for the right to an education.  Imagine the Little Rock Nine, instead of being screamed at, being shot at.  And when she talks about it?  She forgave them and harbors no hate.  For my money, it's either

1.  Malala Yousafzai

  Or

2. Dr. Rdr. Scamandrius.  He's intelligent enough to become a doctor, yet humble enough to be a lowly reader.
