How did the ideas of John Calvin and the organization of the Calvinist church correspond to the interests of the townspeople?

The Calvinist Church, on the one hand, was outwardly quite democratic, pastors were elected by the church community, the decision of important matters was discussed by the general meeting. On the other hand, pastors interfered with the personal lives of parishioners; believers were severely punished for deviating from the Calvinist teaching; entertainment was prohibited; people wore dark clothes; the number of holidays has decreased. All this caused discontent among most of the townspeople.
