My advice would be to focus more on the parenting style that you want to practice together with the new baby at first. That way, it's not really you overstepping your boundaries as a stepparent, it's a discussion of the upcoming child that you have together. Explain to him your feelings about your father's discipline and how you don't want to parent your child in that manner. Maybe that will open the door for a discussion about your stepson and it won't be in a way in which he feels attacked as a parent.
