The problem is, people really believe it.
I don't think it helps that the Pope dresses funny. Naturally enough. The Catholic church is about 2,000 years old, and has a dress code for priests and bishops. The robes that the Pope, other bishops, and priests wear were designed during the declining centuries of the Roman Empire. The dress code could be changed, but there's something to be said for a uniform that's the same in Arkansas, Kenya, and Japan.
The church is flexible, though. When the previous Pope was traveling in Africa, he came off the plane in one country, wearing his standard robes, with an animal skin on his shoulders. Leopard, I think.
I learned that this was a symbol of authority in that area. The Catholic church is like that, accommodating local cultures: like when my ancestors were allowed to drag an evergreen inside and decorate it for Christmas.
I'm pretty sure this won't change the mind of any 'true believers.' For those who are interested, this a very short take on the Catholic take on the topic:
"ANTICHRIST: The 'deceitful one' referred to in the New Testament, associated with the 'mystery of iniquity' which will precede the second coming of Christ, through which people will be led away from the truth to follow a false 'messianism,' by which man glorifies himself and human achievement in place of God and his Messiah come in the flesh, in whom the kingdom will be fulfilled (675-677)."Enough of that.
