Did Jesus say anything about homosexuality?

“I have no husband,” she replied. Jesus said to her, “You are right when you say you have no husband. The fact is, you have had five husbands, and the man you now have is not your husband. What you have just said is quite true.”  John 4:17-18
Jesus did not address the homosexuality issue because it wasn't an issue in his day and time.  It was clear that homosexuality was wrong and Jesus didn't need to say anything.  Just because he didn't address homosexuality doesn't mean he approved it.  Jesus also didn't address incest or bestiality...does God approve of those?
Jesus did address one moral matter - sleeping around with the opposite sex.  He did not approve of the woman at the well, a person who "got around" and had numerous lovers.  While he showed compassion to her, not condemnation, he also didn't show approval.
So how would Jesus respond to homosexuality?  Probably the same way.  He would show compassion and yet point out that it is morally wrong (Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Romans 1:26-28).
