That is absolutely wrong.
That is exactly what the canons do not say!
You do not understand what you are posting about.
The rite or location or priest of the baptism do not determine membership. The fact that the parents have the child baptised according to a particular rite absolutely does not result in membership in that rite.
Your posts are a typical example of what happens when people do not understand what canon law says, but insist on interpreting it for others.
This particular issue has been addressed by the Holy See from the very first days of the Eastern Code. It was one of the questions most asked when the Code was promulgated. It is also one of the most clearly addressed questions.
The act of having a child baptised according to a particular rite or by a particular priest very specifically does not constitute enrolling the child into that Church sui iuris. The parents must make that decision and must actively (not passively) declare their intent to have the child enrolled in the Church sui iuris of the mother. Absent that clear declaration, the child is enrolled in the Church of the father.
Again, your posts are a prime example of someone who does not have any understanding of what the Codes say and how they are applied.
I have never posted what you accuse me of saying, i.e., I have never stated against the canons that it is the rite of baptism, not the mutual decision of the parents, that determine which church sui juris that there infant is ascribed to in the case mentioned (per the canons). Ascription is not about where or who performs the baptism rite.
