I think it would be more productive to consider that Protestants, of whatever ilk, are much more anti-authoritarian than Catholics, certainly in matters of faith.

A Protestant finds it distasteful that his priest or pastor might be any kind of automatic conduit between him and his god and he knows that he is perfectly free to refudiate everything his pastor (or even bishop) says. I don't know how much this anti-authoritarianism spills over into his political life, but my experience says that it does, particularly among Quakers, Unitarians and UCC types.
