Pro-polygamists note that the hearing shows that other conservatives also oppose the Federal Marriage Amendment.

Old Orchard Beach, Maine--- Following a Thursday hearing by the Senate Constitution subcommittee to discuss how Congress might permanently ban same-sex marriages, pro-polygamy activists have noted key comments made at that hearing. News reports on the hearing have stated how the proposed Federal Marriage Amendment is, as put it, "proving controversial even among conservatives and federalists."  
Mark Henkel, pro-polygamy activist and the founder of the Christian Polygamy organization,, responded on Friday. "That bodes well for us. Weeks ago, I wrote an op-ed titled, 'These Conservatives Oppose Unbiblical Marriage Amendment.' Many of my fellow conservatives in the conservative media have been too afraid to publish it, trying to prevent discussion about the amendment. But with quotes from that hearing, everyone can see for themselves that there really are true conservatives who genuinely oppose that abominable idea."  
Dale Carpenter, University of Minnesota legal scholar, is reported to have testified before the subcommittee, saying, "As a conservative, I believe (the proposed amendment) is unnecessary, it is unwise, it is contrary to the structure of our federal government, it is anti-democratic ... and it is a form of overkill."  
"Comments like that," said Henkel, "should wake up the conservative media. They will have to stop hiding and let this discussion openly occur among all conservatives. If not, they will embarrass us conservatives as the opposing media will 'out' them for acting 'unconservative' in this." 
Henkel says that that may lead to truly open discussion, including conservative pro-marriage pro-polygamy activists.
