But first, full disclosure: Just look at the EU and tell me:
The Protestant Reformers tended to hold the belief that the Antichrist power would be revealed so that everyone would comprehend and recognize that the Pope is the real, true Antichrist and not the vicar of Christ.
Doctrinal works of literature published by the Lutheransthe Reformed Churchesthe Presbyteriansthe Baptiststhe Anabaptistsand the Methodists contain references to the Pope as the Antichrist, including the Smalcald ArticlesArticle 4 the Treatise on the Power and Primacy of the Pope written by Philip Melanchthon the Westminster ConfessionArticle In his notes on the Book of Revelation chapter 13he commented: Yet this hinders not, but that the last Pope in this succession will be more eminently the Antichrist, the Man of Sin, adding to that of his predecessors a peculiar degree of wickedness from the bottomless pit.
Not only dissidents and heretics but even saints had called the bishop of Rome the "Antichrist" when they wished to castigate his abuse of power. What Lutherans understood as a papal claim to unlimited authority over everything and everyone reminded them of the apocalyptic imagery of Daniel 11a passage that even prior to the Reformation had been applied to the pope as the Antichrist of the last days.
For who is the man of sin and the son of perdition, but he who by his teaching and his ordinances increases the sin and perdition of souls in the church; while he yet sits in the church as if he were God?

Along with John Hus, they had started the inclination toward ecclesiastical reforms of the Catholic Church. Zwingli, who was a Catholic priest before he became a Reformer, often referred to the Pope as the Antichrist.
In his treatise The Parable of the Wicked Mammon, he expressly rejected the established Church teaching that looked to the future for an Antichrist to rise up, and he taught that Antichrist is a present spiritual force that will be with us until the end of the age under different religious disguises from time to time.
Today, many Protestant and Restorationist denominations still officially maintain that the Papacy is the Antichrist, such as the conservative Lutheran Churches    and the Seventh-day Adventists. One is that the pope takes to himself the right to rule the church that belongs only to Christ.
