NewsRadio 1620 WNRP Branden Rathert interviewed Mark Henkel - Dec 2013
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Branden Rathert, on Live Talk Radio on NewsRadio 1620 in Pensacola, Florida, on December 23, 2013, following 2 landmark decisions (affecting the State of Utah) during that prior 10 days at the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah: Brown v. Buhman (12/13/13, decided by Judge Clark Waddoups) and Kitchen v. Herbert (12/20/13, decided by Judge Robert Shelby). The first decision had de-crininalized "de facto polygamy" (i.e., polygamous marriages without additional marriage licenses). The second decision had determined that it was state-uncontsitutional for a Utah law to ban same sex couples from marriage. In the latter decision, Judge Shelby declared, "The State of Utah has provided no evidence that opposite-sex marriage will be affected in any way by same-sex marriage. In the absence of such evidence, the State’s unsupported fears and speculations are insufficient to justify the State’s refusal to dignify the family relationships of its gay and lesbian citizens." The host himself asked Mark Henkel if that precedent could also apply to UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy - to which Mark Henkel affirmed that it would apply indeed.
