He would love them.

Jesus never mentioned homosexuality. Actually, the strange divisions we now have in sexuality is rather a new thing (I heard on the History Channel, a while ago). But he never mentioned what we would call gay sex acts, in any event.
Yeah, my understanding is that homosexuality as an orientation, a matter of identity apart from behavior, "wasn't a thing" back then in the old days. It wasn't how people thought. One might even be able to argue that the Bible says nothing at all, anywhere, about homosexuality as we understand it today. But in any case, you're right: Jesus never mentioned it.
