Why all canonized authority is a bad thing

I interviewed Chris Haw on his book From Willow Creek To Sacred Heart where Chris tells his path from protestantism to Catholicism.

In the interview I asked him to evangelisze me to his view. I will post videos at a later time where he does, in part, succeed in converting me.

In this short clip we are talking about if there is a need for a “canonized” authority in Christianity at all. He suggest the church is better than the bible as a canon and I suggest there is no need, in fact we would be better off with out the category of set-apart authority and live in “real-time” mutual submission.
