Nomination #1:


*Nehor was a character in the Book of Mormon.  Of Nehor it is said:

He would save all men in their sins and with their sins; he abolished hell, established a paid order of priests, and taught doctrines so liberal that every man could be a member of his church and yet continue to gratify every vice his nature inclined to.  (George Reynolds, A Dictionary of the Book of Mormon, [Jos. Hyrum Parry, Salt Lake City:1891]:266)
