Polygamy Statement as House Votes on Marriage Amendment

Date: Sep 30, 2004
Word Count: 350 words
Cross-Reference: Marriage Protection Amendment, polygamy statement

Mark Henkel, Founder of polygamy organization,, Available to Comment on Today's House Vote on Marriage Amendment 

MAINE,   Sept.   30     -   --   Today,   as   the   U.S.   House   of   Representatives   debates   and   takes   a   roll   call   vote   to   amend   the   U.S.   Constitution   with   the   "Marriage   Protection   Amendment,"   the   Christian   Polygamy   organization,,   continues   to   work   for   the   amendment's   defeat.     Over   the   previous   year,   this   (non-Mormon)   pro-polygamy   organization   has   performed   numerous   interviews,   explaining   how   the   amendment   betrays   true   conservatism   and   true   Christian   beliefs.'s   founder,   Mark   Henkel,   has   released   the   following   statement: 
"As   a   true   conservative   Christian,   it   saddens   me   to   observe   my   fellow   conservatives   betraying   their   conservatism   and   even   their   Christianity   if   they   claim   such   faith   as   their   own. 
"While   I   am   very   empathetic   to   protecting   marriage,   the   amendment   has   absolutely   nothing   to   do   with   protecting   marriage   as   defined   by   the   Bible.     Instead,   it   is   only   about   protecting   'government   marriage.' 
"Not   one   person   in   the   Bible   was   ever   married   by   the   false   god   of   big   socialist   government.     In   fact,   the   amendment   undermines   the   very   Bible   itself   because   it   openly   denies   the   valid   marriages   of   dozens   of   important   polygamous   men   in   the   Bible,   such   as   Abraham,   Israel,   Moses,   and   David.     Absolutely,   the   amendment   betrays   the   Bible. 
"Polygamy   is   a   much   older   traditional   marriage   form   --   according   to   the   Bible   --   long   before   the   relatively   modern   concept   of   'one   man,   one   woman'   was   ever   a   'tradition.'     But   the   amendment   betrays   such   older   traditional   marriage. 
"If   government   was   instead   removed   from   any   involvement   in   marriage,   since   it   should   never   have   been   involved   in   the   first   place,   then   no   one   would   have   to   recognize   any   other   purported   form   of   marriage   anyway.     That's   the   obviously   true   conservative   position   of   very   limited   government.     But   the   amendment   betrays   such   true   conservatism. 
"For   conservative   Christians,   true   marriage   is   exclusively   defined   by   God.     The   false   god   of   big   socialist   government   has   no   business   usurping   God.     God   certainly   does   not   need   any   false   god   to   help   'protect'   doctrine. 
"The   organization   will   work   with   all   resolve   to   compassionately   educate   fellow   conservative   Christians   and   all   others   how   the   amendment   both   rejects   true   conservatism   and   commits   idolatry.     This   polygamy   activist   organization   will   continue   to   work   for   the   defeat   of   this   big   government   'New   Liberal'   amendment."
