Politics: Adolfo Carrion on Hispanic Evangelicals and NYC politics

The New York Daily News' political commentator Ben Smith has an interesting podcast interview with Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, Jr., seen by many as a leading contender in the next New York City mayoral race. In the interview, Carrion delves into "his journey from the Assemblies of God to Presbyterianism and the role Hispanic Evangelicals will play in New York City politics."

Although he doesn't address LGBT issues directly, it's as candid an interview as I have heard/read regarding the Borough President's religious beliefs. He certainly has never answered a reporter's question as to how the Reverend Ruben Diaz, Sr. (see below) and CONLAMIC were able to use public property for their 2004 rally against the right to marry for same-sex couples and in support of President George W. Bush.
