"Peter was the first pope. Regardless of where he was, he was the first pope. It's not a viewpoint, it's a fact."

Based upon what the word "pope" means.

Catholics recognize Peter as their first temporal leader. It has nothing to do with being in Rome. The Pope could never once set foot in Rome and he still would be the Pope.
