Bishops' Finger

Can someone explain this to me? I'm genuinely puzzled.

First - okay, so the CofE has come out with a position on gay bishops that I don't like: there's no surprise there. However, if you accept their premise - namely that gay sex is a sin - then I can see why they'd want bishops to refrain from gay sex and repent any gay sex in their past. For the sake of argument, let's take that as a given.

What I want to know is - given all that, on what grounds is anyone still objecting to gay men becoming bishops? If they remain celibate for the future and repent the sins of their past, what exactly is the problem? Can someone please spell it out, or point me to a link that does?
