English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. abomination

    Abomination (from the Latin ab omen, a thing of ill omen) was originally applied to anything held in religious or ceremonial aversion or abhorrence; as, "The things which are highly esteemed among men are abomination in the sight of God." Luke xvi, 15. The word is oftener applied to the object of such aversion or abhorrence than to the state of mind that so regards it; in common use abomination signifies something very much disliked or loathed, or that deserves to be. Choice food may be an object of aversion and disgust to a sick person; vile food would be an abomination. A toad is to many an object of disgust; a foul sewer is an abomination. As applied to crimes, abomination is used of such as are especially brutal, shameful, or revolting; theft is an offense; infanticide is an abomination.

    If all men are born equal. Why change the subject matter? Are slave humans, or humans slaves? When did we know that humans are slaves? When did man decide to call humans slaves? Man and woman. Created, as man and woman. Not slaves. The slave was never man and woman's name at birth. Why should any human? Be called. A slave by another human like himself. Why, because of his own selfish reasons, greed, and corruption, or fame? Man is not a slave. All men are human without a question. And no human should. Thus be a slave. By its own kind. It is an abomination to the human creation. If a man is called a slave. The man that said this word is a slave to himself. He is shooting himself down. With no respect for his humanness as a man. For a man cannot call another human like himself. A slave, to himself. It is an abomination to our spirituality. Humanness, and our creator by far. Humans are not slaves. All humans are born equal. And if any man calls a human a slave. He is calling himself a slave too. Because he himself is human.”
