Mizzled

The first time I read the word misled, mizzled was the way I said it in my mind. It was only from the context of the thread that I recognized my error. I was misled by the very nature of the word.

So I have on occasion had cause to say I was mizzled when the apparent pleasant nature of something misled me into accepting it before I learned that there could be unpleasant consequences in accepting it. As in "a wolf in sheep's clothing." Or "the devil will approach in pleasing disguise."

This blog has been silent for six months. The cause was the videos exposing how Planned Parenthood was selling the body parts of aborted babies.  I was struck by how mizzled our nation has become. Worse, I have learned that many insist on staying that way. What nearly everybody thought was a godsend in medical advancement was having the cloak over its seedy side removed, and hardly anybody did more than blink for a few weeks. PP had its defenders working overtime whilst the whistleblowers got harrassed -- and their harassment is far from over. It was because I felt both fear and inadequacy in trying to address the wider public callousness, and overwhelmed by a sense of futility, that I stayed silent, trying frequently to resume, but not progressing.

However about an hour ago I read this from Fran Porretto. I cannot tell you how relieved I am that somebody finally addressed the wider consequences that those PP videos should have awakened in the people of this once great nation. An expansion on the comment I left at his site -- about a nation of cannibals -- will be [should have been*] the subject of my next post. I expect it will be met by hostility because I've already experienced it when discussing it with a friend last month.  I hope you few readers are not among them. But it won't be pretty. And you may be guilty too.

[*A very difficult subject that it seems nobody wants to hear. I pray for encouragement.]
