There are some hints from the piece as to what evil is:
We know that evil is real, but good will prevail against it.
We've seen that evil is real.
We don't share the point of view that evil is religious.

We're not fighting a nation; we're not fighting a religion; we're fighting evil.
I think there is one universal law, and that's terrorism is evil, and all of us must work to reject evil. Murder is evil, and we must reject murder.

Anybody who tries to affect the lives of our good citizens is evil.
So… it’s real, but not religious. By that one universal law, terrorism is evil, and murder too. What the US is fighting is evil, and then there is the evil but vague “affecting of the lives of good citizens”. But see, it’s defined, a bit.

Still, no mention of gays wanting to share their social security benefits, or doctors using a stem cell line that originated in a microscopic 16-cell embryo?
