Jesus and Mister Rogers

The Jesus I learned about as a child was sweet and inoffensive, the kind of person whose lap you would want to climb on.  Mister Rogers with a beard.  Indeed, Jesus did have the qualities of gentleness and compassion that attracted little children.  Mister Rogers, however, he assuredly was not.  Not even the Romans would have crucified Mister Rogers.
