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.

  1. Ian Prior:

    Loudoun County's continued implementation of critical race theory in the school system is regressive, divisive, and destructive. It has turned this county into a national punchline, the fact that they now want to spend over $6 million a year to continue to push this morally bankrupt ideologyon teachers and students is an absolute abomination. It is becoming clearer every day that someone is making a fortune on the backs of Loudoun County taxpayers and it is time for LCPS [Loudoun County Public Schools]to start communicating with parents and explain itself with more than misleading press releases from the Interim Superintendent.
