    Hogue in the Morning AM1380 KTKZ interviewed Mark Henkel - Apr 2006

    Hogue in the Morning AM1380 KTKZ interviewed Mark Henkel - Apr 2006

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed on "Hogue in the Morning" on AM1380 KTKZ, in Sacramento, California, of the Salem Radio Network, on April 4, 2006.  After the premiere of HBO's then-new fictional TV show, "Big Love," this consvertive radio show made a media request to discuss polygamy on air, live.  After Mark Henkel's repeated attempts to reach them by telephone (despite the fact the the show was the originator of the media request), and being told that they were out of time more than once while the producer kept the pre-interview calls going long, etc., Mark Henkel became aware during the 2 pre-interview phonecalls that the show could be more hostile than they were sounding.  After Mark Henkel declared that he was not interested in doing that kind of interview, producer Matt Bisiaux  assured him, "We are not going to sandbag you, we're not going to namecall you. We're not that kind of show."  He explained that the host was a Christian himself and that both the show and the network were mostly Christian too. The actual on-air-interview begins after 32 minutes into this recording., and it proved that Mark Henkel's awareness was correct.  The host , Eric Hogue, immediately began as sarcastic and clearly went on the attack from the beginning, putting words into Mark Henkel's mouth which the latter vehemently denied but corrected.  As Mark Henkel would try to answer questions, the host repeatedly cut him off and re-worded what he said with self-evident falsehoods.  At one point, Mark Henkel used a positive statement with which any serious Christian would be familiar, saying to host Eric Hogue, "In the name of Jesus Christ, is this man willing to listen? Are you willing to listen?" The host, betraying his claim of being Christian, then exlaimed back, "Wow! Did you just put a hex on me?" (Actual Bible-studying Christians immediately recognize what that exchange reveals, as no Christian would think that that was hex! God forbid.)  By the end, the host's hostile fighting descended into his outrageous and invented idea that supposedly husbands would ever somehow be "disciplining" their wives.  Mark Henkel responded to this offensive suggestion with the powerful concluding soundbite, "You're thinking from the gutter instead of listening to maturity."

    Associated Press AP Jennifer Dobner interviewed Mark Henkel - July 2006

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Jennifer Dobner for the Associated Press (the AP newswire), on July 26, 2006.  This brief discussion focused on the media problem within the "Mormonland Bubble of Utah/Arizona," and how AP articles (which covers a much larger audience than that local area) were still not making the necessary descriptive differentiations to accurately clarify and disassociate criminals such as the FLDS as not the same thing as normal Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy (UCAP) families. The writer even acknowledged, "You make a good point - that I could be adding this other stuff,"  and later confirmed, "I don't necessarily disagree with you."

    Bards Logic Political Talk interviewed Mark Henkel - Oct 2019

    Bards Logic Political Talk interviewed Mark Henkel - Oct 2019

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed on Bards Logic Political Talk, a 3-hour show hosted by Robert Jetter Jr., with a round-table of the show's additional Conservative and Christian co-panelists, on October 24, 2019.  This was a comprehensive interview that covered so many different issues pertaining to UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy.  During this interview, Mark Henkel first came up with the "No dog in the fight" soundbite as well as first mentioned his observation of what he calls, "#ImposerVsImposer politics" - by which an Imposer always wins no matter which "side" gets elected, all while leaders of both "sides" keep us all divided into tribalism fighting each other.  At one point, one of the specially invited co-panelists, a doctor, began arguing with Mark Henkel about Biblical Polygamy.   At 2 hours and 30 minutes into the interview, the host briefly went into other unconnected political topics, but he brought Mark Henkel back for concluding comments at 2 hours and 48 minutes. "We're just asking for freedom. We're not asking to impose on you. We're not even asking for legalization."  The woman co-panelist concluded, asking if Mark Henkel would be willing to later be a guest on her own show too (to which Henkel positively said, "Yes").  The host concluded, asked Mark Henkel to keep him and the show updated into the future.

    Portland Phoenix Jeff Inglis interviewed Mark Henkel - Oct 2009

    Portland Phoenix Jeff Inglis interviewed Mark Henkel - Oct 2009

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Jeff Inglis, the Managing Editor for The Portland Phoenix newspaper, in Portland, Maine, on  October 29, 2009.   This interview occurred during the week before a mid-term election, in which voters in the State of Maine would be voting on a "People's Veto" to repeal the then-recently-passed new same sex marriage law. (It was repealed on November 3, 2009.  Even so, same sex marriage later became legalized "again" in Maine by the nationwide US Supreme Court decision of Obergefell v. Hodges on June 26, 2015).  For all of this, Mark Henkel had written an op-ed about how the law was neither about "Marriage Protection" nor about "Marriage Equality," and he was waiting for whether the statewide daily newspaper (Portland Press Herald / Mane Voices) would carry it.  If not, this could be an opportunity for the weekly newspaper, The Portland Phoenix,  to show "the article that the Press Herald was too afaid to publish."   The Managing Editor loved this idea.  This interview with him had many good soundbites, including how the law being voted on was supposed to be all about, "equality for all, equality for all, equality for all - except unrelated consenting adult polygamists."   Commenting about the public debate which had aired on local television the night before about the pending "People's Veto" vote, in which the side opposing the repeal (i.e., being for same sex marriage) actually used terms of cruel bigotry when addressing the polygamy question, Mark Henkel explained that the debater's defaulting to false stereotypes of polygamy was as bigoted and offensive as saying that "all gay men want sex with boys."  Mark Henkel re-iterated that the "Polygamy Rights Win-Win Solution" to end the marriage debate is "the intellectual solution to end this war" for all sides and stakeholders.  Agreeing to speak again two weeks later, the Manageing Editor ended with the following request regarding the status of Mark Henkel's still-unpublished op-ed, "Keep me posted on the thing with the Press Herald. I love that stuff. Let's see how the election goes."

    Associated Press AP Jennifer Dobner interviewed Mark Henkel -2- June 2006

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Jennifer Dobner for the Associated Press (the AP newswire), on June 29, 2006.   The discussion involved the breaking news that a Utah group of anti-polygamists called "Tapestry Against Polygamy" had got into trouble with their non-profit status and failing to report all of their donations.  This interview includes Mark Henkel's "using a bandaid with a chainsaw" soundbite to describe the tactics of that small Utah-local anti-polygamist group of hurting former members of specific Mormon-based cults.  Mark Henkel noted how that local group had, years previously, refused his (non-Mormon) organization's offer to help, and the group instead insisted on choosing the propaganda route of smearing all polygamists by their singular anecdotes of tragic experiences in local Mormon cults.  Mark Henkel noted that, by their propaganda-logic then, "if they live by the sword, die by the sword" of their over-generalization approach to propaganda - their flawed logic which he said more than once, "is, of course, absurd."

    MSNBC Scarborough Country interviewed Mark Henkel - Mar 2006

    National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed on Scarborough Country, hosted by Joe Scraborough on MSNBC, on March 28, 2006.   Talking about the groundbreaking premiere of HBO's "Big Love," fictional series about Mormon Polygamists, tow other guests also appreared in this segment, Megan Basham of Townhall.com and Dina Sansing of US Weekly.  The former, as a writer for a conservative website, tried to suggest that polygamists are not as positive as the show portrayed.  Mark Henkel explained how that assertion was propaganda as he gave the soundbite that the "world is larger than little Mormonland bubble of Arizona and Utah."  The latter, as a writer for an entertainment magazine, and noting the example of Megan Bashan (who had been talking over Mark Henkel with her false narrative claims), commented that the show's intent was to "push the boundaries" ton get people ignited and talking.
