How can we even pretend to be able to measure something like the 
spiritual status of someone based purely on their sexual orientation.

It seems to me the height of arrogance to imply that homosexuals are 
inferior as spiritual beings and that being a heterosexual makes us 
somehow superior.

Nature's processes are not always immediately apparent or known by us.
Theosophy teaches Compassion and loving all beings, so did the Buddha.
