Is the Catholic Church the Whore of Babylon?

Some people claim that the Catholic Church is the Whore of Babylon described in Revelation 17-18:

Revelation 17:4-6 - "The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality, and on her forehead a name was written, a mystery, "BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly."

However, a close inspection of these supposed similarities, and other conflicting differences, reveals that the Catholic Church cannot possibly be the Whore of Babylon.
