The Al Rantel Show (John Phillips) KABC interviewed Mark Henkel - May 2009
National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was on The Al Rantel Show (with John Phillips as the fill-in host) TalkRadio 790 KABC, in Los Angeles, California, on May 12, 2009. Days earlier, on May 6, 2009, Mark Henkel's home state of Maine had become the 5th State to formally legalize same sex marriage in law. (NOTE: thatMaine law was subsequently repealed by a "People's Veto" referendum vote, later in the year, on November 3, 2009.) The show's namesake host, who had been known as a public "gay conservative," had been out, due to severe medical issues. This interview took place in the month before the namesake host formally retired altogether. The fill-in host asked many good questions as well as some stereotypical and silly questions. Even though Maine's then-new law had just legalized same sex marriage that week, the law still did not legalize UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy. Mark Henkel had been very familiar with that new law, as he presented a formal "Neither For Nor Against" testmony at the "Public Hearing" in Augusta, Maine, on April 22, 2009. In this interview with the fill-in host, Mark Henkel explained that pro-polygamists do not seek legalization anyway, only de-criminlization, because government has no authority to define, license, or control the contractual arrangements of unrelated consenting adults. Mark Henkel also addressed different practicality issues and he provided answers for callers in to the show.
