The West is lurching through a collective guilt trip, suffering through a crisis of cultural self-confidence. . . . its sense of its own tradition has been rocked hard, and the Christian banner under which it flew, thoroughly shredded. . . . Pope Benedict XVI relates, "Unless we embrace our own heritage of the sacred, we will deny the identity of Europe. . . . There is something deeply alien about the absolute secularism that is developing in the West."
