15 Reasons Mister Rogers was the Best Neighbor Ever.
I've read this a bunch of times and still reread it occasionally. It's nice to know that there was no acting there; he just really was a very nice man who truly cared about others.
This part in particular always chokes me up a little:
Mister Rogers seems to have been almost exactly the same off-screen as he was onscreen. As an ordained Presbyterian minister, and a man of tremendous faith, Mister Rogers preached tolerance first. Whenever he was asked to castigate non-Christians or gays for their differing beliefs, he would instead face them and say, with sincerity, “God loves you just the way you are.” Often this provoked ire from fundamentalists.
