...oh, okay then. I guess you operate above rules of logic?

Actually no, that's not the point. My opinion on polygamy is moot since the argument is fallacious and based on an incorrect premise.

Thus, even if I were a proponent of polygamy, I would not use that argument. I tend to try to stay away from logical fallacies when making a logical argument. Sorry that you don't.

Perhaps you could get back to the topic (ie gay marriage?)

Didn't say that it was inconvenient. I said it was useless.

Irony abounds. How interesting that you begin grading people based on posts and then turn around and use 'professor' as a tongue-in-cheek title.

So your argument is "Let's not push for any advancements in policy at all?"

Wow.

^^AKA why your argument is both useless and annoying, Totenkopf.
