I agree with you about Botean's statement. I'd also point out Ed Peter's analysis that Botean creates a situation where the Vatican will either have to ratify or overrule the statement since it places Romanian Catholics in an ambiguous position vis a vis every other Catholic in the world.
If it were ratified, that would be an extraordinary act since I believe it would place all Catholics under the same obligations. That could have enormous consequences, not the least of which possibly would be to throw our troops into chaos even as they enter into battle.
