Is Harper part of the flight?

Pride of lions, gaggle of geese, flight of swallows. Is Harper one of the notional evangelical swallows that we've been counting?

In one of the comments, koby points out one of Harper's speeches that should lead us to that opinion (see here: hosted by the Christian Coalition International (Canada), probably itself a sign that they think he is one of theirs).

From Harper's speech:
There is, of course, much more to be done in economic policy. We do need deeper and broader tax cuts, further reductions in debt, further deregulation and privatization, and especially the elimination of corporate subsidies and industrial-development schemes. In large measure, however, the public arguments for doing so have already been won. Conservatives have to more than modern liberals in a hurry.

The truth of the matter is that the real agenda and the defining issues have shifted from economic issues to social values, so conservatives must do the same.
