Inaccurate MLK quote goes viral

Everything except the first sentence is found in King's book, Strength to Love, and seems to have been said originally in a 1957 sermon he gave on loving your enemies. Unlike the first quotation, it does sound like King, and it was easy to assume that the whole thing came from him.
I wonder if this tops of the charts for total number of false beliefs acquired in a short period.
