Wittgenstein & talking nonsense
Wittgenstein argues that we are not naturally disposed towards unfriendliness or unsociality; by being speaking beings who create names for the things in our world, we show a predisposition of making something sharable -- language. The thing which separates us, according to Wittgenstein, is when we talk nonsense or mutual unintelligibility. Talking nonsense goes deeper than using a nonsense language, when we speak in nonsense, we are purposefully unintelligible.
Why Mr. Rogers is important today
Mr Rogers ethics extend to our own neighborhoods through how we welcome others. Rogers believes that we welcome people into the neighborhood as they are, and we like them as they are. We are called to overcome internal biases, to put aside the incidentals that are barriers to liking them. Rogers gives us tools to do so. He believes that discourse, even the offer of it, provides an open ground for individuals to meet and begin the process of welcoming each other.

note on the person who pushed the priest
Y'all the person who pushed the priest did not do so because of his homophobic views.
She never said this. In fact she mentioned being bipolar and was acting really erratically when talking and as a person with bipolar - checks out.
The journalists covering this point out the priest's homophobia implying that was her reasoning.
It's bad misleading reporting. There are real people calling out priests, but she is not one of them.

Better to ask forgiveness than permission
Caring for your neighbor means helping those suffering.
Bonhoeffer in his theological reasoning for making a Church to smuggle Jews out of Germany and for planning to assassinate Hitler said that he needed to go to where Christ on the cross was - where the innocent were persecuted.
There is radical action you can do that is quiet. You can participate in traveling and skill sharing. You can let people know if you have housing for a neighbor. The quiet work is also praxis
