As opposed to genuinely Mormon?

No, as opposed to genuinely modernist.

Agreed.
Yet there is no precedent for that, so why is the statement relevant?

I would be okay with it.  He  could not be a married man of course as a bishop or higher.

And perhaps it would help to mend more of the rift between the Roman Catholics and Orthodox. and I would like to see that.

Or it could make things worse.  Many orthodox are not fans of the fact that the Eastern Catholic churches exist.

Exactly. They'd just label the guy a "vile traitor" and move on with their lives.

I I suspect if the Consecration occurs before it is too late, the next Pope will be Russian Orthodox Catholic. What has happened with the split is the rational side is the west, and the mystical side is the east. The Church is both. You know the old joke the Orthodox put a veil over it, incense it, and call it a Mystery, well, we need that.  Reason a very limited and flawed tool, has led us to this point. St. Thomas Aquinas' valuable work by it 's very action eventually led to Nature being falsely explained by reason, as if God's world was divorced from Him. We can see it clearly today in everything. It appears to me we need to return to more fear and trembling of God.

Hear, hear!  The manualist tradition of theology is a very dry way of explaining the Faith, and a rediscovery of authentic mystical theology would be good for the Church, particularly the liturgy.
