National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed  on July 10, 2003, for an article in "Whistleblower" magazine, published by WorldNetDaily of WorldNetDaily.com, by freelance writer, Allyson Smith, for the August 2003 edition.  As the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) had just decided the Lawrence v. Texas case 2 weeks earlier on June 26th, that magazine that served a Christian and Conservative audience sought to get a report on the pro-polygamy response to the Court's decision.  Knowing that he was speaking to that specific audience, Mark Henkel intentionally used that consitituency's rhetorical "commonplace" terminology, in order to more successfuly persuade them of how their own values would compel them to see how the Bible never banned polygamy and how limited government means not using government for such a ban.  Anyone who believes in a Christian or Conservative political paradigm will recognize that this is "no liberal" argumentation (which they know would otherwise dissuade them).  As well, anyone with a liberal or progressive political preference hearing this interview will hear things to which they might not agree, but also which have no bearing on their agreement on the issue of polygamy itself.  Smarter liberals will understand the benefit of using this interview to learn how to use those arguments (regardless of other disagreements) to successfully persuade Christians and Conservatives too, so that it becomes a face-saving Win-Win for everyone.  This interview occurred over a decade ago - a dozen years, actually - before same sex marriage was later legalized, using the rhetoric of that past era.  Mark Henkel declared, "Polygamy Rights is the next civil rights battle."  After Mark Henkel commented about how most people are often surprised when they learn and self-realize that he is using valid arguments, the writer interjected, "Yeah. They ARE valid - definitely so."http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on "Jamie Floyd: Best Defense" on the television network, Court TV, on September 21, 2007.  Host Jami Floyd was a former defense attorney who had been a legal consultant for various television networks, aside from her own program.  This interview was the second of a number of times that Mark Henkel was brought on this TV program as the expert during the trial of FLDS criminal cult leader Warren Jeffs. Mark Henkel was able to adamantly differentiate normal healthy UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy, as not being connected to the criminal Warren Jeffs or those crimes whatsoever.  As she had been previously, the host was very professional, friendly, understood every argumentation, and was again happy to bring Mark Henkel on future episodes during the trial as well.http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Branden Rathert, on Live Talk Radio on NewsRadio 1620 in Pensacola, Florida, on June 13, 2013, to discuss the Constitutional arguments for de-criminalizing UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy, the "Polygamy Rights Win-Win Solution" to end the marriage debate, and how the movement was ready to act after the then-pending decision of the US Supreme Court on the Hollingsworth v. Perry case. (HISTORY NOTE: Later that month, on June 26, 2013, the US Supreme Court instead refused the Hollingsworth case, vacating and remanding the lower decision, solely based on a technicality of "legal standing" and not on the merits of anything argued.) Closing the interview, the host asked one final question, "What's the disadvantage to having more than one spouse?" Mark Henkel gave the quick reply that caused the host to burst out in a belly-laugh: "Multiple In-laws!"http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on The Kevin and Bean Show on KROQ 106.7 FM, in Pasadena, California, serving the Los Angeles area.  The show's namesake-hosts are Kevin Ryder and Gene "Bean" Baxter.  As the "Kevin" was not at the interview, the episode was hosted by "Bean," along with two additional co-hosts, Ralph Garman and Lisa May.  While keeping it fun and entertaining, all three of the co-hosts were respectful, remained friendly, and asked important questions.  This provided a good opportunity to educate an audience about the differences between Christian Polygamy and Mormon Polygamy, as well as the overall movement for UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy.http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on The Ed Tyll Show, syndicated on the Starcom Radio Network, for the weekend edition on Saturday, June 15, 2013. This was the second of two interviews on this show that week, as the US Supreme Court was preparing up to hand down its decision about same sex marriage in both cases of Hollingsworth v. Perry and United States v. Windsor.  For this weekend audience, Mark Henkel once again explained that, if the Supreme Court accepts and sets the precedent that laws may not be based on "animous based stereotypes" as were then-being argued in the Hollingsworth case, it would equally apply to anti-polygamy laws which are even more "animous based" than laws against same sex marriage.  (HISTORY NOTE: Later, on June 26, 2013, the US Supreme Court instead refused the Hollingsworth case, vacating the lower decision, solely based on a technicality of "legal standing" and not on the merits of anything argued.)  Closing out the interview, the host declared to his audience about Mark Henkel, saying, "He's a brave guy.  He's got energy.  He's got the conviction of his beliefs.  And that is contagious.  We love it on this show!"http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed on The Michael Baisden Show, on March 9, 2006, nationally sydnicated on the ABC Radio Network.  The highly entertaining host is billed as "The Bad Boy of Radio" who always would say to his callers (and they would say back to him), "Everything is everything!"  In this episode, the host set up the show to ask, "Is there a better, less stressful, and more responsible way to conduct our relationships?  Can polygamy exist in America today?"  As a better solution to "lying, cheating, and creeping" of being forced into monogamy, this was an entertaining way to discuss the honesty, responsibility, and issues of UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy.http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed for The Standard-Examiner by Nancy Van Valkenburg, in Ogden, Utah, on March 2, 2006, for an article about the then-new fictional TV series, "Big Love" on HBO.  As she was reporting from what Mark Henkel identifed as "the Mormonland Bubble" of Utah/Arizona, he educated her about different forms of UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy.  This interview provided the reporter with a comprehensive explanation of how Mormon Polygamy is not Christian Polygamy and the differences there between.  Despite all this education, the newspaper decided to take took a negative position and did not even mention within the article any of that which the reporter had learned, instead continuing false stereotypes.http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Jennifer Dahl for KUTV 2, a CBS-TV affiliate, in Salt Lake City, Utah, on March 24, 2006.  This was a non-aired research-interview about polygamy beyond the Mormon polygamy paradigm.  Coming on the heels of the then-recent hostile mis-reporting by 2 other corporate media from what Mark Henkel called "The Mormonland Bubble" of Utah/Arizona, the interview began with Mark Henkel being rather strongly assertive about not being mis-represented.  Jennifer Dahl seemed to quickly understand how such a strong posture demonstrated a valid "pathos" that anyone would normally have when so mis-represented. She rightly made clear that she was not with those other organizations. Upon learning through the interview, not only did Jennifer Dahl thereafter demonstrate that she was indeed learning the differentation of various forms of polygamy, she even positively and professionally acknowledged the actual positions being explained. Thereby turning the interview into a rather friendly and educational discussion, Jennifer Dahl learned about the  different forms of UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy, and the overall National Polygamy Rights Movement for Consenting Adults.http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed on The Thom Hartmann Program, by Thom Hartmann himself, nationally syndicated radio and TV show, on December 30, 2013.  This was Mark Henkel's second interview on the show, having given an interview 6 months previously too.  Even though Mark Henkel, in the previous interview, had already disproved the host's erring fallacy of trying to say that what a cult did with "Lost Boys" is something mainstream America would do, the politically-liberal/progressive host still started off the second interview with that exact same insulting premise.  When the host claimed "I have polyamorous friends" while still coming against polygamy, Mark Henkel made the comparison of that being "polygaphobia" as identical to when people saying others are having "homophobia" when they use the "I have a friend like that" self-justificaiton of their bigotry.  At the end, the host, speaking alone, pretended to "not understand," despite the fact that he knowingly started off this second interview with the intentionally exact same insulting fallacy that he had unsuccessfuly tried to use at the start of the interview from 6 months previously, back in June 2013.  As before too, Mark Henkel repeatedly explained to the host the emphasis that UCAP is about "Unrelated Consenting Adults." http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on Court TV Morning Radio with Vinnie Politan, on satellite Sirius 110, on March 21, 2006.  After the cable TV network, HBO, debuted the premiere of its historic fictional series, called "Big Love" (on March 12, 2006), the host wanted to learn more about polygamy and whether or not the show accurately reflected polygamous families' experiences.   (Prior to this TV show, no network had ever aired any series that presented polygamy in any positive non-criminal example.  That is why it was so history-making.)  The host unwittingly mistook that Mark Henkel was speaking with the show "really early" as if his guest was from Utah, not realizing that Mark Henkel was in Maine, in the same time zone as the show.   Mark Henkel was allowed to clarify that UCAP (Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy) has nothing do with crimes, criminals, and cults, to differentiate the different forms (Mormon polygamy, Christian polygamy, secular polygamy, etc.), and to explain the "Polygamy Rights Win-Win Solution" to end the marriage debate.http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
