De Luca’s definition of liberal

Francis De Luca at the Pope Civitas Secession [1]¬†Institute apparently thinks that Locke Foundation President John Hood and Republican U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers are “self-described liberals.”

Here’s what De Luca told the News & Observer [2] about the effect on the marriage discrimination amendment of Gov. Perdue’s decision not to seek reelection.

A Democratic primary is “a mixed blessing for anti-marriage people,” De Luca said. “The only group that opposes it are self-described liberals that make up a very small part of the voting public.”

Hood and Ellmers have stated publicly they oppose the amendment, as do many conservatives and libertarians.
