I just went to confession and the priest said that, as far as he knew that should suffice. 
IMHO, just go with what your priest has said.

Maybe they take conversion to Baptist, evangelicals sects as a more serious offense then Orthodoxy?

Certainly.

When I came back from the Baptist though, the priest made me read a profession of faith in front of the altar and then gave me a letter of good standing.  Maybe they take conversion to Baptist, evangelicals sects as a more serious offense then Orthodoxy?

Ok do what your priest tell you. Catholicism is about obedience.

The problem with this issue is that, unlike Orthodoxy most modern RC's don't have spiritual fathers.  You just go to confession and take whatever priest is in the box.  The parish I was in at the time had two or three priest assigned there.  The firs time I spoke personally to the Msgr. who helped me out.  The second I confessed to a Nigerian priest who was an assistant at the time.  I thought about maybe going back to the Msgr. for some clarification, but I figured that the priest I confessed to should have been competent enough to give me the right advice so I just dropped the issue and considered myself back in the RCC.

You are catholic, no doubt about. We catholics are too many for the few priest we have, thats a big problem, I don't know if in Rumania, Greace, Russia, they dont have problems on vocations and they have the same disposition of priest for al the eastern christians as in USA.

Somewhere I remember reading that, despite a married clergy the OC's are down on vocations too.

I defiantly consider myself RC all the way.
