It depends on what you mean by "acceptance of homosexuals."
First, the Church doesn't really recognize the term "homosexual." Such people are people with an inclination to a particular sin.
Like all of us, they must "repent and believe." Those who don't see sodomy as a sin can't be formally welcomed into the Church. But they can certainly be evangelized, and welcomed to learn about the Church.
Francis can’t change settled doctrine and it’s about to drive him crazy. He’s sees nothing at all wrong with having homosexuals all over the Vatican. He sees nothing wrong with all the homosexuals made priests after Vat 2 that brought so much discredit on the Church. These sodomites are his buddies, led by American bishop Donna Wuerl, the pro-abortion modernist who’s as queer as as wooden nickle, and Francis has to know, and he does not care.
