AP tries for clever, but comes up with stupid

There has been speculation lately from those with little us to occupy their brains about whether the snazzy red loafers that adorn the Pope’s feet are Prada.  It turns out that they not.  Never say that the modern media isn’t heavy on the investigative reporting, right?

This inordinately silly story would not be noteworthy were nit not for the opening sentence of the AP report, which aims for clever, and lands squarely in stupid:

The devil may wear Prada — but the pope does not.

I know that the above sentence is an attempt to riff off some pop culture phrase, but it sounds remarkably as if the Pope is, somehow, in league with or subordinate to the Devil.

Also, am I missing something or should Pope be capitalized, because it’s a unique title?
