There was actually an entire movement in feudal Japan endorsing Samurai homosexuality. To be fully honest, I don't feel like going "Samuel Browning" on the research (I say this in a complimentary way btw)...but there are direct areas in the Hagakure (do a search on google for Hagakure and homosexuality for one, the other I recall is a lot more direct and specific covering full on long term commitments and is in the first or second chapter of the book.
And there is this as well:

The Knights Templar? Really? Hadn't heard that one. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but. . . . well, the Greeks didn't really have any kind of cultural or religious problem with homosexuality per se, and neither did the Japanese (Buddhist priests did much the same things--sort of a "limited" homosexuality practiced mostly with other members of their own orders, and mostly between elders and youngsters.)
The Knights Templar came from a society and a religion that didn't tolerate homosexuality (EDIT: "open" homosexuality) all that well, so I wonder how it would become part of their ritual? I could see covert relations developing, I guess, but acceptance as part of their orthodoxy seems strange. Does anyone have further information on this (or the Knights Templar in general?)

According to Dan Brown, who at least pretends to cite sources, The Knights Templar rumor was more done to discredit the order due to heritical beliefs.
Who cares though? If you spend 9 months of the year under rough conditions without any chance of female companionship is it that big of a surprise? Look at prisons.

Warriors who have sex with other men when they don't have captive slavegirls to rape and can't impregnate their wives because they're at home with the kids...aren't homosexual in any reasonable sense of the term.
They may be mechanized attack squad, depending on their regiment...I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn
