Dave, what bothered me was not that Lewis chose to provide a counterweight to Brody, but what he cited as examples of Rudy’s divergence from conservatism. Objectively, the gay and lesbian community is an important part of New York City. The city has days that salute Israel, the Irish, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, evangelicals, etc. I honestly don’t see why acknowledging the contributions of gays and lesbians should be seen as a bad thing, worthy of derision.
UPDATE: More from Lewis.
