Mister RogersWARNING: The following post contains images of a shocking nature and despite its source material, is not appropriate for anyone under the age of 18. And before you get all excited, no, it does not contain naked boobies.

We all remember lovable ol' Fred Rogers, aka TV's Mister Rogers, as a warm, cuddly and caring neighbor who never wore a frown and always had a smile for someone smaller than him.

But what if all those cheerful hellos, colorful sweater jackets and speeches about being special on Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood were just a mask hiding something very dark and sinister? Specifically, a clown mask?

What TV can teach us: Christianity - VIDEOS

jesusThis is the first in a 376-part series* in which I try to better myself, and in turn better the rest of you, by turning to the font of information known as television, courtesy of this other font of information known as the internet.

It is my belief that everything we need to know can be learned from television. We have relied too heavily on books for too long, and it's time we stopped reading and started accepting everything TV tells us.

Today, let us all learn about Christianity, one of the three Abrahamic religions along with Judaism and Islam:

Fred RogersAccording to the AP, the producers of the classic PBS children's show Mister Rogers Neighborhood want to create a new show. Kevin Morrison, the CEO of Family Communications, Inc. told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that they are in talks with producers of various children's shows about creating a new program that is completely different from the one Fred Rogers hosted from 1968 to 2001. Rogers died in 2003.

No concrete plans were reported, but even Rogers' widow, Joanne, seems to be in favor of the move. "I really think Fred would be proud of the organization for trying to continue their leadership in the field of children's television," she told the Post-Gazette.

The Five: Five interviews with five cool dead guys

Mr. Rogers speaks to US Senate

Mr. RogersMan, I miss Fred Rogers. There are plenty of icons in children's programming, but you were never quite sure if the people you saw on screen were really that kind and nurturing in real life, or if the whole thing was just an act.

I'll admit his show didn't thrill me as a kid the way Sesame Street did, but there was something very genuine and very real about the man. Waxy.org found this clip of Fred Rogers addressing the US Senate in 1969, concerning a proposed endowment for the newly-formed Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
