I'm not Catholic or anything, but Pope Francis seems like a really good dude. I've said it before, I'll say it again, #thenewpopeisdope

Pope Francis is Time magazine's "Person of the Year". I'll bet Miley Cyrus is all twerked-up over it.

The other finalists for Person of the Year were NSA leaker Edward Snowden, gay rights activist Edith Windsor, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, singer Miley Cyrus, U.S. President Barack Obama, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of health and human services.
Thank you, Time, for not picking Miley Cyrus. If we gave awards, we'd dub Time the Magazine With Best Judgement Of The Year 2013. (Too bad, Rolling Stone.)
