Easter Milk Questions

Bought and watched MILK yesterday, then attended church with the family today. So on Saturday I saw a powerful movie that brought tears and affirmation. Then on Sunday I celebrated the resurrection of the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, whose named shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. I felt the spirit both days. I find comfort in the belief that Christ and Milk (and so many other loved ones) are not dead but alive.
What do you think Jesus has to say to Harvey Milk? Does he condemn him as an evil man who broke down needed barriers to keep homosexual sin from becoming even more accepted in a corrupt world? Or is the message more along the lines of well done, you saw injustice and ended up being murdered trying to make this world a better place for all children of our Heavenly Parents?
Maybe the conversation goes something like this, "Harvey, I've got someone I'd like you to meet. You have quite a bit in common. His name is Joseph Smith."


  1. I like that last paragraph. Thanks for your thoughts.

  2. I was just thinking the same thing Sarah said. I LIKE that last one!

  3. Thanks, Sarah and Alan. Glad that third graph worked for you both. Sometimes life's like that isn't it? You're just glad you made it through the first part. The second part is OK. But you hit the third part and you say, oh this more like it, but I wouldn't be here with out parts 1 and 2.

  4. I have a lot night shifts, so my wife often goes to movies with a close friend. they saw both brokeback mountain and milk, otherwise i would have seen those movies with her. that being said, i'll just have to check it out some day

    for a mormon to have written the screenplay and receive an academy award is proof to me of the existence of god, much stronger proof than all those sunsets

  5. Good point. Also it will be great to see what Lance comes up with over a lifetime of screenwriting and producing since he's only a pup in his mid thirties.
