"No, it is not God's will that a few rich people enjoy the goods of this world and exploit the poor. No, it is not God's will that some people remain poor and abject forever. No, religion is not the opiate of the people; it is a force that exalts the lowly, and casts down the proud, that feeds the hungry and sends the sated away empty."
Letter to the People of the Third World
