Frank's actions divided his congregation and his church and left a wound that's still open, friends & neighbors who no longer speak to one another and a court case that's as of yet unresolved.
Initially I had more protesters in the photo, I wanted Frank to seem embattled. I tried it with various mixtures of supporter and detractors and ultimately decided that it looked best with one lone protester and Frank going home after a weary day.
In any event, if you were trying to get home along Baltimore avenue on Saturday night but were prevented by a bunch of gawkers blocking the street -- sorry about that.
Paul Khun as Frank Schaeffer.
