    B) Supporters called for an equalization of wealth and power.

    Explanation:

    The premise of the Social Gospel Movement was that to honor God people must forget about their selfishness and give a hand to others, mostly the needy. It was not right to accumulate wealth (this was supposed to be shared with them).

    Followers of this movement carried out several reforms to achieve this. One of their most relevant benefactions for the needy was settlement houses construction. These houses benefited less fortunate people in many ways, granting them access to education, free or very cheap health care and housing, and many other benefits.
