I understand the filioque is officially optional in the Eastern Rite Latin Church now. Can truth be optional?

Can truth be optional?
Of course not, but most of the Eastern Catholic Churches are returning to their Orthodox theology. In fact, the largest of them, the Ukrainian GCC has dropped Filioque, and I believe the Melkites have done so as well.

(Eastern Orthodoxy is pure Christianity)
The filioque was never required in the Eastern Churches, but only agreement to its truth. See the discussions at the Councils of Lyons II and Florence.
