I can't believe that Rafe is considered as a "better" person than EJ. He is guilt tripping anyone that does not do as he wants things. They way he is guilt tripping Sami is disgusting ,.. accordingly to my view.
Let us not forget his creepy, controlling interest in his baby sister's reproductive choices. He frigging used his police badge to bust into an abortion clinic to stop his sister from getting an abortion (something he should have be fired from the force for doing, and could very well have gotten him shot by security).

Brothers can be interested in their sisters' lives. They just shouldn't be able to control their little sisters' lives and choices. Rafe hasn't come off as caring, but as furious that he's not the one making Gabi's choices for her.

The writing for the character, whom I assume the writers want us to like, is bewildering. EJ is supposed to be a villain, and he does villainous things so it's not really fair to compare the two, but Rafe does a lot of un-heroic things.
I don't recall Rafe using his badge to break into the abortion clinic; he and Sami walked in the front door together. He tried to get into the room where Gabi was by telling them he was a cop, but he didn't try to physically break down a door or anything.

As far as guilt tripping goes, I would say Sami is the one doing a good job of that by shoving the trust thing in Rafe's face every chance she gets- nice,since she is the one who had griefsex when she was married. And oh yeah, he forgave her for that.
