Michael Novak paints a different picture of newly elected Pope Benedict XVI than does most of the Mainstream media:

He says in brief that the newly elected pope will be faithful to the word of Jesus Christ, opposes authoritarian forms of government, and thinks democracy is exceedingly vulnerable to the tyranny of the majority.

He also said that he will not be a clone of the old pope and that his ideas of change are more radical than those of John Paul II. He will be open to the media, but will oppose "modernizing the church to appeal to modern men and women at the expense of fidelity to the word of Jesus Christ, even if it means losing numbers."

Radical? I think not! Sounds like the Papal job description to me.
