The full quote is: "God gave the earth to everyone equally, and if some have too much and some too little, the ones with too much must have stolen it some way."

I am not certain of the source. These words may have been spoken by one of the Nicaraguan campesinos recorded in The Gospel in Solentiname. Or, this statement may have been made by a Central American base Christian community organizer to a group of educational travel seminar participants in 1984.
