i still find it sort of funny that people can get so worked up about the supposed purity of the GFFA characters. or the purity of george's vision. there is loads upon loads of loss of innocence going on ROTS alone so you'd think palps turning out to be gay is no big deal. but hey! murdering is fine and can be discussed, sexuality is a no-no. I don't think its an issue of morality. I think people are trying to avoid reading into things too much and seeing things that aren't there. We have no way of knowing for sure what the Emperor's sexuality is because the films don't show him in any romantic relationships. However, I'm certain that the Emperor doesn't feel love towards Anakin or anyone else because he's too evil. Is the Emperor sexually attracted to Anakin? The movie never gives any clear indication of his. While we might not be able to disprove the theory, we certainly can't prove it. There's no more evidence that the Emperor lusts after Anakin than Obi-Wan lusts after Padme (or any other characters having feelings for each other that aren't shown onscreen). For this reason, I wouldn't talk about the Emperor having feelings for Anakin in an objective discussion. Its purely speculation and doesn't have any definite facts to back it up.
