Pope's Leadership Style

I could be wrong, but when speaking about Pope Benedict XVI's leadership style, clergy might want to stay away from descriptions and metaphors like these,emanating from Rev. M. Price Oswalt of Oklahoma City:
"He's going to have a German mentality of leadership: either get on the train or get off the track. He will not put up with rebellious children."
I'm not sure about this, but you might not want to travel down that road considering Ratzinger was brought up in the darkest decades of German history. And it's always good to know that no matter how old you are, if you disagree with the Catholic Church, you're nothing more than a little brat in need of a little "Nanny 911," Pontificate-style.
