20/20 ABC News Kristina Kendall interviewed Mark Henkel - Jan 2008

National Polygamy Advocate

National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was in-person interviewed by producer Kristina Kendall immediately after John Stossel had also interviewed him, for "20/20" on ABC News TV, on January 30, 2008, at the ABC studios in New York City, New York, for a "John Stossel Special" that would air on July 18, 2008.  The producer needed to capture additional soundbites from Mark Henkel.  She took questions that John Stossel had just asked him in the previous interview and continued to have Mark Henkel provide more brief and succinct responses.  It is from this interview that the since-renowned "That's Insane!" soundbite was recorded.   Mark Henkel also gave several other excellent soundbites in this final interview that did not get aired.  The producer expressed her positivity repeatedly, exclaiming at separate times, "Good answer(!)," "Very good(!)," and "You're great(!)."  From her pre-interviews (as previously broadcast in past podcasts) through this last interview here, the sincerity of these positive exclamations are both undeniable and further proven by the positivity of the resulting segment that aired later that year in the Summer of 2008.  This is a "must-hear" interview. http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support

20/20 ABC News John Stossel interviewed Mark Henkel - Jan 2008

National Polygamy Advocate

National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was in-person interviewed by John Stossel, for "20/20" on ABC News TV, on January 30, 2008, at the ABC studios in New York City, New York, for a "John Stossel Special" that would air on July 18, 2008.  Even as producer Kristina Kendall had prepared some of the topics for John Stossel to ask for this full-camera taping, he still asked questions in his own way, was interested and positive toward Mark Henkel, and even offered indirect suggestions on how Mark Henkel could consider answering questions that the show's audience would be able to understand.  (For example, John Stossel suggested that many in his show’s audience might not know what "laissez faire" means, even as he said that he would agree with the term, himself.  The producer said that they were looking to see Mark Henkel's passion on camera - which he both easily and unquestionably delivered.  Mark Henkel offered numerous soundbites and education on many issues such as polygamists not having legal standing to sue media for libel or slander, as civil court judges exploiting anti-polygamy laws on the books to decree separation of unrelated consenting polygamous adults from even being near each other, as the "seeds and gardens" analogy of why we see fewer examples of people choosing polyandry, as the "10 men and 10 women" analogy,  as the "Marital Marxism" soundbite, and as many more. It is from this taped recording that the soundbites of Mark Henkel were extracted for use in John Stossel Special's polygamy-segment that eventually aired that Summer 2008.  This is a "must-hear" interview, archived for history and for all researchers of UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy.  After John Stossel had completed this interview and had left the taping room, Mark Henkel remained, continuing to provide more on-camera answers with the producer to be used in the final product. That additional taped interview will be provided in the subsequent podcast following this one. http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support

Peri Muldofsky independently interviewed Mark Henkel - June 2006

National Polygamy Advocate

National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Peri Muldofsky, former Development Producer for ABC News Productions, but still freelancing for them on June 10, 2006.   In this (the third of three) interviews, the producer said that she was no longer full time employed by ABC News, that she worked for the History Channel instead, and that she was still able to write articles for major media such New York Sunday Times magazine, Glamour, and other print media. She still very much wanted to so something with Mark Henkel and this story. The interview referenced Mark Henkel's several experiences/observations with various personalities in the media, including Lester Holt of NBC-TV, Stanley Kurtz of The Weekly Standard, Albert Mohler of CrossTalk.com (who made the outrageous claim that supposedly "legalization of polygamy means the destruction of marriage"), and Karole Honas of KIFI-TV (who had been urprised by the story from a feminist angle). When Mark Henkel lamented the disappointing ordeal of when he and one of the polygamous families from the TruthBearer.org organization were on NBC's "The TODAY Show" (even though it was not a negative report), she again offered some more excellent insights and education about how TV media puts together their spots. Mark Henkel explained how the two wives in one of the organization's polygamous families had traded off working and caring for children with each other in both getting their college education. He said, "Talk about the ultimate feminist success story!" The freelance producer/writer exclaimed, "Right! To me, one of the banner headlines would be like, 'Is Polygamy Better for Women?" The question to me is not even, 'Is Polygamy Bad for Women?' The question is, 'Is Polygamy BETTER for Women?'" Happily embracing the fascinating and feminist angle of this non-Mormon-polygamy, the freelance producer/writer emphatically and politely wanted and invited further exploring into how she and Mark Henkel might put together a story with a wife of a polygamous family that she could write for one of the top major print media. Affirming that intent, she exclaimed, "I think it's a really good story." http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support

Over the previous several months, Mark Henkel had conducted numerous interviews with AP Reporter Jennifer Dobner.

BBC TV Harriet Pleming interviewed Mark Henkel - Mar 2003

National Polygamy Advocate

National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Harriet Pleming for the BBC, in London, England, on March 24, 2003.  Having previously given an interview a few months beforehand with a different BBC journalist, Mark Henkel was glad to help the BBC in their continuing research into the new movement of Christian Polygamy and the TruthBearer.org organization.  Mark Henkel explained the Reformation, "Sola Scriptura," how and why individual Bible-studying Christians come to discover and understand that the Bible never banned polygamy, and how the organization is "Continuing the Reformation."  Explaining how the organization does this for others and overall society, he said, "It is really a sociological process of paradigm shifting."  Mark Henkel even noted how some renowned Christian media elite have publicly paradigm-shifted, by their saying, "You won't find the Bible calling polygamy a sin, but we don't recommend it."  Mark Henkel also clarifed that normal polygamists around the country have nothing to do with Tom Green or with Brian David Mitchell who kidnapped teenager Elizabeth Smart.  To aid the BBC's research, Mark Henkel explained how Christians (from all forms and denominations - from Law-based to Grace-based beliefs), come to find, get support by, and join the TruthBearer.org organization as a para-church support organization, as well as how the overall movement seeks after de-criminalization, not legalization, of polygamy for unrelated consenting adults. http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support

Newsweek Elise Soukup interviewed Mark Henkel - Mar 2006

National Polygamy Advocate

National Polygamy Advocate ™ Mark Henkel was interviewed by Elise Soukup, for Newsweek magazine, on March 2, 2006, for an article later published in the March 20, 2006, issue, titled, "Polygamists, Unite!"  This 90-minute interview provided a comprehensive education of the principles and history of Christian Polygamy, the standard of Love-not-Force, the movement of UCAP, Unrelated Consenting Adult Polygamy, and how such various other forms of polygamy are each different from the doctrines and backgrounds of Mormon Poygamy.  Using his "sunny day vs rainy day" analogy, Mark Henkel detailed how the word, "polygamy," is a neutral noun that will have different premises, paradigms, and presuppositions based on the different adjectives that modify it - whether Christian Polygamy, Jewish Polygamy, Muslim Polygamy, Mormon Polygamy, etc.  Mark Henkel also elaborated on the  three modern-day  US Supreme Court decisions that make anti-polygamy anti-constitutional, and he also provided the history of the 1878 "Reynolds v. United States" anti-polygamy decision that was the "real slippery slope" that led to -and would cause- the legalization of same sex marriage (which did happen later in 2015). He said in this 2006 interview that, after same sex marriage does get legalized, conservatives should re-discover their conservative values of limited government and thereby embrace the polygamists' solution to end the marriage debate.  http://www.NationalPolygamyAdvocate.com--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/nationalpolygamyadvocate/support
