The real Fred Rogers was an ordained Presbyterian minister who believed that his childrens show was a pulpit of sorts, from which he preached Jesus message of unconditional love and boundless mercy (albeit without mentioning Jesus name). This movie retains not just that message, but hints at the quiet faith that lay beneath it.
We see Fred pray, sometimes to Lloyds discomfort. His Bible makes an appearance or two. And when he talks to a dying man, he asks for the man to pray for him. When Lloyd says that was a kind thing for Fred to do - knowing that this little act of faith would make the dying man feel a sense of purpose - Fred looks at him aghast: Anyone whos going through what that dying fellow is going through must be especially close to God, Fred says.
