Is the pope Catholic?
Usually, that’s a rhetorical question. Unless you’re one of the conservative few who think Pope Francis may be an antipope and a schism in the Church is looming, given there remains another living pope.

In the article, the paper accidentally referred to the pontiff as “the first non-Catholic pope for 450 years.”
The Polish Karol Wojtyla became the first non-Italian pope in 450 years.
