It's because Mr. Rogers truly believed in his mission:

I have a hard time not crying whenever I read or see something about him. One of the finest people we've ever known.

Mr Rogers is not capable of the punishment such blasphemy deserves.

Dead is definitely a reason to not be capable.

I'M SORRY, MISTER ROGERS!!!!

If you truly want to get kicked in the feels, go read all the remembrances when he passed away. I am not religious, but if ever there was a saint among us, Fred Rogers was it.

I read he was the Circleville Writer.

He sent me a nice 8x11 autographed photo when I wrote him

Fred Rodgers was one of the few genuinely good people that existed on this planet.

This morning's episode was about how crayons are made and a rigged drawing contest.

I think a lot of Mr. Rogers' message was that, if we all treated each other like we ought to - like he did, we'd find that all people are genuinely good.

I have one from a few years before he died.  I was shocked to get a response.

Thinking about Mr. Rogers always reminds me of the children's TV shows I watched when I was little.  Romper Room and Captain Kangaroo first thing in the morning when I was in kindergarten.  When I was in elementary school, (mid-70's), we had those  PBS shows we watched in class like Ripples, Inside/Out, Mulligan Stew.  And of course, the ABC After School Specials.

I also watched Romper Room and Capt. Kangaroo, though I think the Captain was only on during the weekend. My favorite was Bozo, which makes me sound really old. Like, if you watched clowns on TV, you are just from another era. Everything is CGI cartoons now. Even the 2D ones are done on computers. I also remember watching a Disney exercise show that was only entertaining because people in Mickey and Donald outfits showed up. Also, Dumbo's Circus, another people-in-outfits show. At least I don't go back to the days of Hoody Doody like my dad, then I'd feel like a frigging dinosaur.
