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.

How to use curse in a sentence?
A man's moral conscience is the curse he had to accept from the gods in order to gain from them the right to dream.
You're the most uninvited ever, Yet you force and barge in. You come with such a despise, Which bring forth sadness and torments which we cannot suffice. You leave the scars that couldn't be healed And memories that cannot be faded. Yet you come!! I curse you that you wouldn't see the bleak light of happiness for all eternity!! And be haunted by darkest demons of fraternity.
Inscribe all human effort with one word, artistry's haunting curse, the Incomplete!
I use it a lot, i curse out all the people who I hate and the ones I love I also curse... because I can.
I didn’t make any noise, i wasn’t rude. I didn’t curse at anybody. I was just sitting enjoying a cup of coffee with friends.
