Interesting article.

To my mind this is the weenie:

"Regarding the politics of the Next Christendom, European terms like ‘right’ and ‘left’ do not apply. While these Third World Christians may agree with American social conservatives on a few issues, they practice anti-Western identity politics and often demand wealth redistribution from the First World to the Third. Third World Catholics, for instance, may cite the 1967 papal encyclical Populorum Progressio, calling for “bold transformations to redistribute wealth globally”. In this respect, Samuel Huntington has identified the modern Catholic Church as one of the principal engines for Third World progressive movements in the 1980s. The Catholic Church also sides with the Third World and against the West on the issue of mass immigration.

Collectivism, involuntary wealth redistribution, identity politics for all except heterosexual white males (for whom it is forbidden), and mass immigration to the West (but to nowhere else) are the foundational tenets of leftism.

This is not Christianity but rather is its opposite.

It's the old COMINTERN strategic vision, dressed in a chasuble.
