KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 20— Three men have agreed to destroy recordings of racist and anti-gay telephone messages that imitated the voice and speech of ''Mister Rogers'' from the children's television program.

Mr. Rogers and Family Communications sued the men and the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan last week in Federal District Court to stop the playing of the tape-recorded messages.
