Portland Phoenix Reports: "After the battle"
Where will same-sex marriage be in 2010?
After the new "same sex marriage" law in Maine became official law on May 6, 2009, the Managing Editor of the Portland Phoenix, Jeff Inglis, requested an interview of Mark Henkel, the Founder of the TruthBearer.org organization. He had heard Mr. Henkel speak at the Augusta Public Hearing on the (then-pending) law on April 22, 2009. The purpose of the interview was to get opinions from relevant and important voices as to what each one believed could be expected to happen 18 months after the new law had been in effect.
In the May 13, 2009 issue, Jeff Inglis wrote his report,
"After the Battle - Where will same-sex marriage be in 2010?"
In one appropriate paragraph, he accurately reported Mark Henkel's assessment.
End to 'marriage control'
Mark Henkel, founder of TruthBearer.org, an Old Orchard Beach-based group promoting "Christian polygamy," says conservatives will continue to object to same-sex marriage, and predicts they will ultimately come around to his perspective: that governmental "marriage control" of any kind should end. "Both sides are redefining marriage," he says, either as one-man-one-woman, or any-two-adults; both, he says, discriminate against polygamists. He hopes government will eventually get entirely out of determining what is or is not a marriage, so long as it is between "unrelated consenting adults."
Managing Editor, Jeff Inglis, genuinely performed a good job indeed.
