The local PBS station just had a fund-raising program centered around Mr. Rogers, it was my hands-down choice over anything else.
Fred was ordained a Presbyterian Minister in 1963 after graduating from Pittsburgh Seminary, but he NEVER had to mention his faith-beliefs, he didn't want any viewers to feel excluded.
The roots of his program began while he was working for a station in Canada.
It's been widely reported that his motivation was recognizing how bad commercial television was (for children) but focused on developing its potential instead...
Mr. Rogers received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from W. Bush (2002) and 40 honorary degrees, also awarded a Peabody Award. He was inducted into the National Television Hall of Fame.
With all the (claimed) talent good examples / 'works' that ChurchCo has....
Where's the ChurchCo Mr. Rogers?
