"The Rev. A. Wayne Schwab of Trinity Episcopal Church in Plattsburgh, who is also president of the religious organization Member Mission Network Inc., said that what the church decides about sexuality is a matter of discipline, not doctrine.

"The Episcopal Church has always been 'roomy' in the area of discipline, according to Schwab ..."

'roomy' as in "lax".

Those who are in sin should not be in the fellowship of the believers (in the 'church') let alone leaders in the church.

Yes, homosexuality is a SIN. Read the Bible,it is an abomination to our Lord. I agree with your post. These people should not be leaders in any church. Get on their knees and repent and ask Jesus to save their souls before it it too late.

At least they shouldn't be considered Christian or considered for leadership in any church that calls itself Christian.
