The papacy is the much anticipated Antichrist. According to Ellen G. White and the Seventh Day Adventists, the Pope is the Antichrist. It does not refer to the person occupying the pope's office, it is the Pope's Seat and Office. The antichrist claim is based on the title of the pople "VICARVS FILII DEI" meaning "The representative of the son of God".
I'd suggest doing your own research into Daniel and Revelation before spouting information that you got from a "prophet" who died nearly a century ago.
Highly unlikely as John gives us the definition of an anti-christ as anyone who denies that Jesus is the Christ and has come in the flesh. That is effectively all Jews, Muslims, atheists, Buddhists, etc, etc. A central Catholic Church doctrine is that Jesus is the Christ therefore the Pope cannot be the antichrist by definition.
There is no antichrist mentioned in Revelation unless someone chooses to personally interpret the beast or false prophet as being antichrists. However, if we were to interview one of these characters on record, I somehow doubt they would deny who Jesus was, therefore by John's definition, they would not be antichrists.
Of course, believers will fight amongst each other, spitting venom and calling names because they can't agree on their beliefs. They give contradiction and hypocrisy more evidence and examples than one could shake a stick at.
Pope Francis is a future saint, 2164 is the time when we should be worrying about messiahs and antichrists visiting. The procession of aeons, the age of aquarius, you know the routine. However, if the mathematics are off and this really is 2163 not 2013, my money would be on Bob Dylan as the anti-christ.

1st Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Why would the Apostle Paul need to explain that Adam was formed first and then Eve? Don’t we all know this? But the Church at Ephesus was taught a lie about...

The bible states that the beast had two horns like a lamb, but a mouth that speak great blasphemy! On the surface it appears to be the Church of Christ, but on close inspection one see that this beast with horns like a lamb is the enemy of Jesus. This beast places a woman the ahead of Jesus Christ,...

What if during the time that the Roman Senate was creating Christianity, there was another group of people creating a resistance to this new religious movement. What if they we're called the "Anti-Christians" and that was shortened to the "Anti-Christ". What if they still...
