Writings of a Professional

BLOG of the National Polygamy Advocate ™


Mark Henkel is the leading professional Writer for polygamy rights. (See the
BLOG of the National Polygamy Advocate ™.

As reported in "The History of the Movement" by ChristianPolygamy.INFO in 2003, Mark Henkel has been writing articles to persuade the masses about polygamy since 1994.

In those first years in the 1990s, his writings were more focused on laying down the irrefutable and duplicatable argumentations for activists to use to prove that the Bible never prohibited polygamy whatsoever. From the original "Truth Tracts" and forward on to the organization he founded, another web-site,, later organized Mark Henkel's Biblical argumentations into a single online resource.

As the new decade of the 2000s came, the direction and focus of Mark Henkel's writings changed.

As his Love-Not-Force (from 1999) became the standard (not just for Christian Polygamy, but for all forms of unrelated consenting adult polygamy), Mark Henkel began getting media attention for this uncoercive, benevolent form of polygamy. In those days, the only times when most of the major media would ever report about something involving polygamy, it would involve real criminals. To protect normal pro-polygamists from being so mis-defined by such media, Mark Henkel's attention and writings became more directed toward both the news cycles and the specific politics of de-criminalizing unrelated consenting adult polygamy.

A long history of articles are available online.

The ™ media-distribution site's archive of Pro-Polygamy Articles ™ contains a number of Mark Henkel's personally-authored writings over the years. The following links are just a small sample of his work.
