Well, yes, you would think so.

And it's all fine and well to say that we should separate the singer from the song, but we're talking about a situation that's a little more complicated than that. Priests and the rest of the Church hierarchy do not merely sing a received song. Part of the "song" is a rationale for their own authority, and that rationale enjoins the faithful to depend on them for interpretations of the rest of the song. So, yes, if the singer is not even a decent human being, it has a way of calling the veracity of the song into question.
