The point is that some people want to argue, "Isn't christianity great? It gave us MLK!", however since MLK was also influenced by non-christians, the claim does not hold up. Personally, I find the whole exercise distasteful. It's like two parents arguing over which one their child loves more after he's won the school spelling bee or something.
EDIT: Better analogy - it's like a parent boasting about how wonderful they are after their child has won the spelling bee.
