Mark Henkel - the National Polygamy Advocate and founder of the Christian Polygamy organization, - responds and is available to the media for comment about the national pro-polygamy view.

Old   Orchard   Beach,   MAINE,   August   29,   2006     -   -         Mark   Henkel   is   the   founder   of   the   (non-Mormon)   national   Christian   Polygamy   organization,       As   the   originator   of   the   renowned   sound-bite,   "'Polygamy   rights'   is   the   next   civil   rights   battle,"   he   has   become   the   established   National   Polygamy   Advocate.     Representing   the   broader   demography   and   geography   of   America   than   simply   the   regional   "Mormonland   area"   of   Arizona/Utah,   Henkel's   proven   experience   with   assisting   and   educating   the   media   about   polygamy   has   helped   accelerate   the   polygamy   rights   movement   for   all   consenting-adult   pro-polygamists.      
In   response   to   today's   news   that   Mormon   Polygamist   Warren   Jeffs   -   a   fugitive   who   had   been   on   the   FBI’s   Top   10   Most   Wanted   list   -   has   been   caught   by   Nevada   police   today,   Henkel   issued   the   following   statement: 
"Most   pro-polygamists   around   the   country   are   very   glad   that   fugitive   Warren   Jeffs   has   been   apprehended   today.     Jeffs   is   the   reported   leader   of   a   specific   brand   of   Mormon   Polygamy   called   the   "FLDS,"   the   Fundamentalist   Latter   Day   Saints.     But   contrary   to   the   misinformed   stereotype   which   combines   the   definition   of   all   polygamy   according   to   one   specific   brand   of   Mormon   Polygamy,   the   actual   fact   is   that   many   other   forms   of   polygamy   exist   -   from   secular   polygamy   to   Muslim   Polygamy   and   now   even   to   Christian   Polygamy.     Indeed,   for   the   last   12   years,   there   has   been   a   growing   movement   of   conservative   evangelical   Christians   vocally   advocating   a   benevolent   form   of   consenting-adult   polygamy   called,   Christian   Polygamy.     Such   pro-woman   Christian   Polygamists,   along   with   other   pro-polygamists,   have   been   wanting   Jeffs   to   be   apprehended   ever   since   his   alleged   crimes   were   first   reported.     Now   that   he   has   been   caught,   Jeffs   will   rightly   face   trial.     He   will   do   so   in   a   real   court   of   justice   for   the   factual   crimes   for   which   he   had   been   placed   on   the   FBI's   Top   10   Most   Wanted   List.     He   will   not   be   facing   any   charge   of   polygamy   as   that   was   never   the   crime   anyway.     He   just   happened   to   be   the   leader   of   a   lone   sect   that   was   a   rogue   variant   of   Mormon   Polygamy,   yet   which   also   committed   real   crimes.     Expressly,   Jeffs   was   only   wanted   by   the   FBI   for   one   count   of   sexual   assault   of   a   minor,   for   one   count   of   conspiracy   to   commit   sexual   conduct   with   a   minor   in   Arizona,   and   for   another   count   for   rape   as   an   accomplice   in   Utah.     Such   charges   are   crimes   on   their   own;   they   are   not   about   normal   polygamy,   at   all.     Jeffs   should   -   and   now   he   will   -   stand   trial   for   those   real   crimes   for   which   he   is   charged.     However,   normal   pro-polygamists   should   no   longer   be   libelously   smeared   by   any   implied   association   with   Jeffs   and   his   abhorrent   variant   of   Mormon   Polygamy.     Indeed,   most   non-Mormon   Polygamists   have   openly   opposed   Jeffs’   alleged   crimes   -   and   all   of   the   underage   issues   -   as   much   as   any   non-polygamist.     Even   many   Mormon   Polygamists   have   opposed   his   alleged   crimes   too.     Accordingly,   all   normal   pro-polygamists   –   and   especially,   Christian   Polygamists   -   from   around   the   country   are   very,   very   glad   that   Jeffs   has   been   caught   and   that   the   process   of   justice   may   now   truly   begin.” 
Mark   Henkel   is   available   for   media   comment.
