Mr. Rogers Actually Had A Radical Theology That Most People Didn't Know About

Alicia D'Aversa 23 Jul 2019

Mr. Rogers was always known for being kind and humble, but now that the trailer for A Beautiful Day in the Neighboorhood has dropped people are all up in the feels again with him.

But here's something you may not have known: he actually had a very specific theology that he followed.

So he was a Presbyterian minister who was very clear on his stance even on his show.

Which is why we loved him so much.

He made sure to remind us to love everyone.

And he practiced that theology on and outside of the show.

This is an incredible thing for him to have done at the time.

Not many people would have.

He was definitely someone who practiced radical activism for someone at his time.

Especially since his show was for children!

This entire Twitter thread just makes me more excited for the movie.

Seriously, I have tears in my eyes.

Go read the thread and cry along with me!
