Sound Off, Oct. 31

Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

I am responding to a letter to the editor. Billy Graham is just a man. No more, no less. God will forgive him and his followers for being bigots. But they must first see the error in their thinking and ask for forgiveness.

Four Americans in Benghazi are dead. With information now available, officials in Washington, D.C., refused help for them three times during the raid. They should resign immediately or be fired.

Trust Billy Graham when he preaches the saving grace of Jesus Christ, but watch out when he endorses a presidential candidate. The last time he did that was in 1972, and a couple of years later, Richard Nixon, Graham’s choice, resigned in disgrace just before certain impeachment. Stick to preaching, Rev. Graham.
