Why did it take 500 years for someone to NOT choose a name in the "prophecy of the popes"?

Which means he'll die mysteriously like the last pope that wanted to shake things up - John Paul the 1st.

People are complaining about his views on gay marriage and abortion.

It's like complaining that water is wet. What do they expect?
