One thought on “Watts: ‘I have nothing to hide’

  1. Joel Watts speaks in that “I’d like to have it both ways” voice that prevails in the UMC today. He’s not really taking a principled stand; he’s equivocating…but wanting us to approve of his ambivalence as a kind of novel holiness position. Ratiocination is what this is, not a principled stand. But before he concludes, he throws in a card trick, telling us he would file complaints to enforce the Discipline. It’s an empty plea since bishops have begun to foreclose on the possibility of charges over same-sex complaints.
