No, just noticing for instance the projection of the Vatican's mandated clerical celibacy, for instance, on everywhere outside majority Orthodox countries (where its ruse is obvious, and it can't get away with such antics).
The point I'm making is it wasn't the desire of the Church to make any military move after Constantinople. I'll admit, after the deed was done, the Pope used the current situation to the Catholic Church advantage. Probably knowing, without means of communication beyond foot, trying to reconcile what had been done and then moving forward with unification would be that much harder. As you can see, the event hasn't been forgotten even 800 years later.
And as had been explained, there is a reason it hasn't been forgotten. The event epitomizes a Latin attitude that persists to this day. Just look at how the Vatican treats its fellow Eastern Catholics.
You're projecting the attitude, IMHO.
Clerical celibacy is a discipline for all priests in the Catholic Church,
you mean the Vatican. Yes, I am aware of that. But the Vatican and many of its followers deny that when we bring it up.
not just Bishops as in the Orthodox Church (as you are well aware).
Yes I am. Unfortunately, not all are so aware. And then there are those who deny it.
Since they are in the Catholic Church,
No, they are not. They are under the Vatican.
there was a period when that discipline was desired throughout the Church.
That period is the present.
Why? Because, while you see the Easter Catholics as hostage Orthodox under the Pope,
the ECs are in reality a member of the greater Catholic Church.
No, in reality they are not members of the greater One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. The confusion over that is the sources of their problems.
As for them being subjects of the Vatican, yes, I agree. But that isn't the bill of goods they were sold when they signed the "union" (that's called fraud in the inducement btw). Cf. their "ecumenical" council of Lateran IV "...we would wish to cherish and honour the Greeks who in our days are returning to the obedience of the apostolic see, by preserving their customs and rites as much as we can in the Lord..."
Therefore, the discipline had been pushed universally. Of course, there are also ECs that prefer to keep the Eastern discipline. Just as there are Latin Catholics that want to adopt the Eastern discipline.
St. Alexis Toth, pray for us all!
