OpinionJournal - The Pope's Easter

Daniel Henninger discusses Pope Benedict XVI's Maundy Thursday homily--a hard-hitting speech against Muslim terrorism--and predicts that this Pope will also hit hard against the rise of secularism in Western Europe. He notes--as have others--that the former Eastern Europe hasn't bought into this kind of secularism, and the two parts of Europe are already drawing battle lines.

With regard to terrorism, Pope Benedict actually stated that the terrorists display "blindness and moral perversion." Evidently he still doesn't want to admit that Islam itself is a terrorists' religion. But he will not make the kinds of mealy-mouthed excuses for terrorism that so many in our mainstream (or, as Rush Limbaugh calls it, drive-by) media have been making.
