A few weeks ago I mentioned Mr. Rogers in my sermon on real manhood. Now, personally, I like Mr. Rogers. His show was one of the only children's shows available during the week back before cable and satellite TV. He was a Presbyterian minister with a gift for connecting with children.
Now, since that Sunday a couple of weeks ago a number of folks have come to me saying "Hey, did you know that Mr. Rogers was a sniper in Vietnam?" I heard that one, too. However, it's just not true. You just can't believe everything you read in an e-mail I guess. Here's the detail from www.truthorfiction.com.
