They are being baptised in the Anglican Communion which does not believe homosexual sexual orientation as an obstacle to any of the Sacrements, including holy orders.
If they were approaching the Catholic Church, it is unlikely that they would be baptised unless their upbringing was going to be in the Church, and in line with Church teachings, which does not seem particualrily to be the case; or of course that they were in danger of death.
However, as the Sacrament of Baptism is performed in the Anglican Communion in line with the trinitarian formulae; the children will recieve a valid baptism Ex opere operato - that is to say, the minister is irrelevant to the performance of a valid baptism so long as they are baptised in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Baptism could be done by any person, even an atheist, if he had the right intention to baptize the child. Again, "Ex opere operato." If I were the couple, I'd record the Baptism in a family bible and have witnesses sign it, or even go to a notary with witnesses and swear that a baptism, in accordance with the rites of my church was carried out.
Why punish the child??
