America Believes Rick Warren Is World’s 3rd Most Influential Person


Gay hating flip-flopping pastor Rick Warren comes in at No. 3 on Time‘s reader-poll of the world’s most influential people. He was beat out by “moot,” the creator of mischievous website 4chan, but topped Baitullah Mehsud, the Taliban warlord and suspected Benazir Bhutto assassin.

      I really can’t believe Time is actually publishing that list after they were so obviously hacked by the 4chan crowd.

      Why are the they still in business again?

      Poor Americans…so parochial-minded…I am starting to think that the “stupid-American” stereotype is true….

      This is one of the scariest people in America, and, he should be watched and called out for his hate, since he has more power with people who actually make the laws, than the two bit, over the top preachers that most gay suites give far more attention to than they deserve.

      … and I’d like to see how talkative is he is after, for instance, climbing three flights of stairs.

      So, let’s look on the bright side. Rick, like most of these preachers, spend too much time with peas, cornbread, and the like. Just look at him. Headed for an early grave for sure.

      Don’t read anything into this. 4chan users spammed the votes so that the first letters of the names of the top 21 people would spell out “Marble cake, also the game.” Rick Warren placed third not because he is that influential, but because his name begins with an R.

      Yeah, I think this a prime example of why on-line polling for almost anything of consequence is a terrible idea.

      @rickroberts: Don’t let Rick Warren touch your peas! If he tries, tell him “No” in a firm voice and look for an adult.

      If it’s true, then it’s good news for that hag Melissa Ethridge. Nice to have powerful friends.

      But really, what is 4chan? I have never heard of this until reading this post.

      Unfortunately, I have heard of Rick Warren before.

      4chan’s a website which you would know all about if you even bothered to read the info on the winner, moot.

      That said, please don’t check out the site itself since you will probably be scared shitless by most of its content.

      @Ancaletus: Well if you’ll look at an earlier post you’ll see that religious people are dumber than non-religious people…and Middle-America/ The south are all full of very religious people…hence the stupidity… :D

      Here’s a link if you want to know about 4chan and how Time has completely made an ass out of themselves:

      @HayYall: There were attempts to hack the Time site, but it looks like they didn’t succeed. Rather, it seems to have been the result of a coordinated effort on the part of 4chan members (who number in the jillions) to cast multiple votes for moot. I, for one, welcome our new overlord.

      Thanks to Obama he is now a household name and richer than even he himself could have ever imagined.

      Thanks Barack!
