Was King insane?

1. All Christians are mentally ill.
2. Martin Luther King was a Christian.
Therefore, Martin Luther King was mentally ill.

There's a valid argument for you. But I have trouble accepting premise 1. Some people on the Rational Responders seem to think that 1 is true, and are willing to accept the conclusion of this syllogism. Amazing.

Yeah, I actually contacted RRS about this. They say that any theist is suffering from a mental disorder. I wanted to see if they would be consistent enough to think that such sages like MLK suffered from a mental disorder then. Well, they admitted he had mental problems. It is amazing. But that's what you get from RRS, no?
