National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Sylvie St. Jacques for LaPresse,  in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on June 6, 2006.  This was a general Q&A interview for the French-Canadian-speaking newspaper, seeking soundbites and background, following the then-recent premiere of HBO's new fictional TV show about polygamy, "Big Love."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 September 5, 2006.  This was following the arrest and extradition of Warren Jeffs, the cult leader of the FLDS, the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints.  Mark Henkel was respectfully given the opportunity to clarify that UCAP (Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy) has nothing do with that criminal, cult, or its crimes, and to differentiate the different forms (Mormon polygamy, Christian polygamy, secular polygamy, etc.).  Speaking with callers to the show, Mark Henkel also provided his longer-soundbite of three specific reasons why Christians can not rationally use the "Adam & Eve" story to justify using government marriage conrol to enforce an unbiblical "One Man One Woman" (OMOW) doctrine.http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed for NewsRadio 1020 KDKA by Lifestyle and Entertainment Editor, Shelley Duffy, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on March 27, 2006.  This was a general Q&A interview (including a brief amount of unexpected technical difficulties), seeking soundbites from Mark Henkel as the National Polygamy Advocate ™, following the then-recent premiere of HBO's new fictional TV show about polygamy, "Big Love."http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on The Tom Barberi Show on 97.5 FM Talk, KFMS, in Salt Lake City, Utah, on March 13, 2006, following the then-recent premiere of HBO's new fictional TV show about polygamy, "Big Love." The host was a Utah-locally-renowned liberal/progressive commentator whose tagline claimed to be for "legalizing adulthood" as the host being "the voice of reason."  As the host had just, moments-previously, interviewed a painfully hostile anti-Mormon polygamy group that existed back then in Utah (who wrongly blamed "all polygamy" for the horrible crimes committed by specific fundamental Mormom polygamy based cults), the host was repeatedly hostile, mockery, and directing questions intended to discredit or to disparage.  Mark Henkel stood strong and gave rapid, educational, and conprehensive replies, using the "neutral noun is not modified by a missing adjective" argumentation, and more.  As the host had not succeeded in discrediting or disaparaging, he chose to end the interview with a self-laughing mockery, "Maybe at some point, when you get your own show, we can just listen to you go and on about this."http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on Culture Shocks with Barry Lynn, nationally syndicated, on April 11, 2006.  The interview itself occurred on March 27, 2006, following the then-recent premiere of HBO's new fictional TV show about polygamy, "Big Love." The host is a renowned politically liberal/progressive commentator, media-known for being counterpart to the co-host Pat Buchanan in the 1990s (a conservative Presidential Candidate in both the Republican and the Reform Parties), and the host also is head of a progressive organization named, the Americans United for Separation of Church and State.   Serving that particularly liberal/progressive audience on his own show, the self-identified "great liberal" host remained very professional and polite on the show, asking very good questions.  Some unknown situation was decided by the syndicated hierarchy in the background during the interview that caused the interview from not being aired "live" that evening, to then being pushed to Wednesday, March 29th, and to then eventually airing on Tuesday, April 11, 2006.  From Bible arguments, to genuinely helping abandoned single moms in the modern cultural tragedy of marriage-phobic "playas" and "baby daddies," to case law analysis, Mark Henkel was able to provide many good insights and answers in a very intellectual discussion. http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on Understanding the Law with Peter Lamont, on UTLradio.com, on June 29, 2015.   On the Monday weekly 2-hour legal review that the host would present each week with co-host Bob Hughes, this episode was coming after the 3-days-earlier historic decision by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS), Obergefell v. Hodges (6/26/2015), that formally legalized same sex marriage.  The host is an attorney who self-identified as a Christian (Russian Orthodox) who defends equality and fairness.  The co-host is a Republican who self-identified as non-religious.  The host and co-host interviewed Mark Henkel on this episode between the times of 12:56 and 41:34.  The show opened with a  reading and detailing of the Court's Opinions & Dissents from Obergefell v. Hodges.  The host then welcomed Mark Henkel to answer the fundamental question that both conservatives and liberals have to consider in the wake of that SCOTUS Decision.  How can it then still be possible, or fair, or even about equality if this decision still allows government to still deny and even criminalize UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy?  Mark Henkel's gave answers that were so helpful and definitive that the two co-hosts continued talking about the matter for 15  additional minutes afterward.  Their continued conversation (without Mark Henkel) is included here to demonstrate the impact for history and future researchers of this history.  Truly, this interview is one for all liberals and conservatives alike to listen, learn, contemplate, and take action.http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on Richmond's Morning News with Jimmy Barrett on 1140 WRVA, in Richmond, Virginia, on March 14, 2006.   That month, polygamy had just become a "hot topic" for talk radio as the new HBO TV show, "Big Love," had just premiered that month, being the very first series (fiction) to show polygamy in a non-criminal manner.  (In the pre-interview setup, beeps are used to protect the privacy of a telephone number.) Both WRVA overall and this show specifically served a conserative Christian audience in the Bible Belt, and the well-known host was surprised to learn that there are indeed evangelical Christian arguments being made for UCPA Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy.  The host asked his questions very professionally, respectfully, and positively.  This interview became another good example for teaching and learning how to make the case specifically to conservative evangalical Christian audienceshttp://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on The Dom Giordano Show, on The BigTalker 1210 WPHT, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on March 16, 2006.   The issue of polygamy had just become a "hot topic" for talk radio as the new HBO show, "Big Love," had just premiered that month, being the very first series (fiction) to show polygamy in a non-criminal manner.  The host is the show's renowned namesake, long established on a network committed to serving a politically conservative and Christian audience.  The host was positive, professional, surprised, and was able to rightly acknowledge the powerful answers and differentiations that Mark Henkel had presented.  Callers, however, called in to fight; and, Mark Henkel also did not disappoint in this arena.  This interview provides a powerful and educational lesson on how to frame, present, and argue with conservatives and Christians about Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy (UCAP).  He showed how, with One Man One Woman (OMOW) big government marriage control, conservatives betray their own limited government values and Christians commit the largest "sin" of all as the Christian leaders have "gone the way of Jeroboam son of Nebat" to lead their people into the idolatry of "worshipping the false god of big socialist government."  Being a show with a radio talk format designed for rhetorical battle, and therefore by his intentionally using their own conservative and Christian positions and arguments, Mark Henkel thoroughly and strongly "schooled" the callers.http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on BackChat on Radio Television Hong Kong RTHK, co-hosted by Hugh Chiverton and Bryan Curtis, on September 8, 2006.  While airing live during Hong Kong morning, the 12-hour time zone difference meant that Mark Henkel gave this interview at 9:15 pm ET the night before on September 7, 2006.  While using conservative and Christian "commonplaces" of terms, Mark Henkel explained how it doesn't matter whether or not one supports same sex marriage because government has no authority to license, define, or control what consenting adults choose to do in their freedom of assembly.  With the "Polygamy Rights Win-Win Solution to end the marriage debate" in a way by which everone "wins," Mark Henkel explained how everyone is free to choose, regardless of that which others support or do not support what yet others choose or imagine for their own lives. The "house of cards" of anti-polygamy thinking analogy was explained in detail.  Overall, the two co-hosts asked excellent questions, all of which were given solid and duplicatable argumentation answers. http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
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
