On September 20, 2007, Mark Henkel, the Founder of the TruthBearer.org organization, appeared as a phone-in guest on the pay network CourtTV's news talk show, Jami Floyd: BEST DEFENSE. Speaking over a backdrop of his own picture and a satellite image of Old Orchard Beach, Maine, Mr. Henkel was there to provide a national perspective in the then-current trial, Warren Jeffs.
The discussion was genuinely excellent and went very well. Ms. Floyd made some very positive statements and asked good questions
From the beginning, Ms. Floyd, said, "Tell us why Warren Jeffs, in your view, is not the face of polygamy." Mr. Henkel quickly replied with his well-known sound-bite: "To connect all polygamists outside of the Mormonland bubble of Utah/Arizona, to connect all polygamists around Amercia to Warren Jeffs is as slanderous and as offensive as comparing all teachers to Mary Kay Letrouneau.". Ms. Floyd burst into laughter and then beamingly stated, "I like that anology!"
The conversation proceeded very positively indeed. At the end, Ms. Floyd thanked Mr. Henkel for being on her show in "keeping them honest" as she put it.
So that polygamy rights supporters may hear this entire interview, an audio-recording of this interview is freely available in the TruthBearer.org Members Area. (For anyone who is not yet a member, simply JOIN TODAY!, and then you may hear it right after you log in!)
Both Mr. Henkel and the entire TruthBearer.org organization are grateful to CourtTV for providing the opportunity to let the real issues about polygamy to be presented.
The entire TruthBearer.org organization is grateful indeed.
