Frank still hasn't shed all of his Protestant baggage. The Protestant part of him (which I really think is his core) is the angry crusader who wants to change everything, usually with a heavy dose of moralism and smugness. Its kind of an iconoclastic spirit, really, kind of like the Puritans and other crusading Calvinist movements that have popped up from time to time in Church history. What Franky seems to lack is that Orthodox and traditional Roman Catholic mellowness that strives for the golden mean, avoiding the passions as too inflammatory, and accepting the guidance of Holy Mother Church even when Holy Mother Church irritates us at times. The Church is kind of like your Mother, even when she angers you, you keep your mouth shut and RESPECT her, because she's still your mother. Enough said.
