An e-mail trap

I couldn't resist sharing this.  At the end of my e-mails I often have a quote I like.  In this case it was from Martin Luther King Jr., and in response, someone who used to work in the film industry in Los Angeles, objected.  Observe our on line conversation:

My original quote:
"The ultimate measure of a person is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at times of challenge and controversy." Martin Luther King Jr.

He wrote:
At the end of all your emails you quote a MLK statement, he was a sexual deviant and a liar.  Perhaps now you may have second thoughts.

I answered:
Hmmm.... What about this one? "This human world of ours would be inconceivable without the practical existence of a religious belief." 

His reply to that:
I shall agree with this one as long it was not a quote from MLK. 

My final word:
Oh no, it's wasn't from MLK. It was from Adolf Hitler.
