It is one thing to accept people as people, regardless of anything (orientation, race etc). But in the case of homosexuality it seems wise to at least look for a meaning in the prohibitions many traditions have. Perhaps in the future psychology will find the hidden value of homosexuality and the key to its function. But the path to that will probably be through respect for the taboo, meaning acceptance of gays along with an assumption that they are actually heterosexuals with a quirk. Not a defect, not a disease, but a quirk, like everyone has.
