Friday letters: Bessinger a puzzling figure

February 28, 2014 

I am confused after reading the article on Maurice Bessinger (“Maurice Bessinger, BBQ baron and defiant segregationist, dies,” Tuesday). How can you be a so-called “devout” Christian and claim to want to “further (God’s) work" while being a blatant racist? Makes no sense to me.
