Dustin Lance Black

The Oscar winner for best original screenplay used his acceptance speech as a pro-homosexual soapbox tonight, promoting same-sex marriage and federal equal rights for “gays” and lesbians.

Dustin Lance Black won his Academy Award for writing “Milk,” the story of Harvey Milk, the first openly homosexual man to be elected to major public office in America. Milk was portrayed by Sean Penn in the film set in San Francisco in the 1970s. Penn was awarded the Oscar for best actor.

The emotional Black stated in his acceptance speech:

When I was 13 years old, my beautiful mother and my father moved me from a conservative Mormon home in San Antonio, Texas to California, and I heard the story of Harvey Milk. And it gave me hope. It gave me the hope to live my life. It gave me the hope one day I could live my life openly as who I am and then maybe even I could even fall in love and one day get married.

I wanna thank my mom, who has always loved me for who I am even when there was pressure not to. But most of all, if Harvey had not been taken from us 30 years ago, I think he’d want me to say to all of the gay and lesbian kids out there tonight who have been told that they are less than by their churches, by the government or by their families, that you are beautiful, wonderful creatures of value and that no matter what anyone tells you, God does love you and that very soon, I promise you, you will have equal rights federally, across this great nation of ours.

Thank you. Thank you. And thank you, God, for giving us Harvey Milk.

Sean Penn also promoted the homosexual agenda during his own acceptance speech for best actor, saying, “We’ve got to have equal rights for everyone.”

He first addressed the audience as “You Commie homo-loving sons of guns.”
