Umm, I think we're reading different threads. I'll agree the intent of the thread, probably wasn't his sexuality, but I think it definitely has become derailed to be about that.

Well, why not? It's about Ghaal isn't it, and the news is that he just officially "came out" as it were.
Read the OP again. His sexual orientation is off-topic unless it is brought up in relation to his ideology.

Which has nothing to do with the existence of the thread. If you said "then again, this thread has been derailed to it," it would have been a more sensible statement.

I'll agree that the statement would be more sensible, in terms of semantics.

But I still think that this thread has become about Gaahl sexual orientation.

It's not really just semantics.

And no, the thread itself didn't "become" anything else. His sexual orientaton is just a tangent, however large a one.

It is semantics. You think this thread isn't about his sexuality so it seems more sensible. I do think it is about his sexuality, so I think it makes sense. However, since the thread wasn't started about his sexuality, and I used the word "exists", i'll grant you that you're right about sensibility - in terms of semantics.

Read the last half of the posts of this thread though, almost every single one is about the subject of his sexulity.

but, obviously, we disagree... so whatever... respond, and then let's move on....

The thread is not about his sexuality -- that's not a matter of interpretation. It is a fact.

Yes, but that does not change what the thread is really about. And the OP himself even posted again to clarify what the thread is about.

And I agree with the truth. ;)

So then, does anyone think that Ghaal is actually an evil person or is he understandable in his decisions and his actions? (And I'm not talking about his homosexuality!)

According to Christian ethics?

If so, yes, he's quite the nefarious rascal.

The new interview, while stirring up a lot of shit about his sexual orientation, also had several interesting points that are related to this thread. I suggest that you read it, as he explains his past crimes (though his own words cannot be taken for the truth).

Gaahl is such an attention whore. There's something new about this guy every week. Something tells me this is just another publicity stunt and he actually isn't gay.

I've never read a Gaahl interview where he seemed so happy. He says he is in love. I'm very curious to see what sort of lyrics he comes up with.
