Portland Press Herald Seth Harkness interviewed Mark Henkel -1- Nov 2006
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Seth Hartkness for the Portland Press Herald, on November 29, 2006, as the first of 2 interviews with him for an article that would be published in the December 15, 2006, edition of this local Portland, Maine, newspaper, titled, "In Maine, supporter argues for polygamy." The reporter had read an Associated Press (AP) article that his newspaper had published days earlier on November 24, 2006, titled, "Polygamists Say Jeffs case Paints Distorted Picture." This hour-long first inteview for the Portland Press Herald provided numerous argumentations, explaining both Christian Polygamy and UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy. Regarding Henkel's renowned soundbite that "Polygamy is the Next Civil Rights Battle," Henkel clarified, "With my soundbite, oftentimes, people then suggest that we are 'riding the coattails of so-called same sex marriage.' And actually, anytime anybody ever says that, there are four letters that should be plastered on their forehead: L-I-A-R, because we are NOT riding on the coattails of the homosexuals." Henkel explained how the Polygamy Rights Win-Win Solution actually brings an end to the whole marriage debate. He also provided story-examples of unidentified members of the TruthBearer.org organization, showing how some families have come together and thrive, and also showing how even civil law has been used to abuse polygamists in court only because the anti-polygamy laws are on the books.
