Word For The Day, Monday,7/23/12
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
1. a person or thing detested or loathed: That subject is anathema to him. 2. a person or thing accursed or consigned to damnation or destruction. 3. a formal ecclesiastical curse involving excommunication. 4. any imprecation of divine punishment. 5. a curse; execration
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Boston mayor declares Chickfila anathema. Is he going to try to throw the CATHOLIC CHURCH out of town as well? because they share the same views. For the record, we are trying to increase our patronage of Chickfila precisely because of their views. xshub ate there this weekend. We like it anyway, but we want to show them increased support.

No pushing at the door please!
i brought chicken minis for breakfast for everyone. welcome to class.
Since the 2008 Election, anyone who supported Obama has become an anathema to me.
I will Not fake civility to anyone who has helped bring about the destruction of my beloved country.
A+++ i know exactly what you mean.
BEHOLD the Happiest Moment in the GOPe Candidate's life:
The Moment of Imposition of Statism and DEATH PANELS forever
and soon, for all - An anathema cubed, put in by Tyrants.
The absence of a MANDATE for healthcare
Are those from Chick-Fil-A? Yummmmm!
Thank you for the pick-me-up!
no, i’m sorry OBAMA is anathema. i will vote against him and for the republican candidate.
they are the breakfast minis, their nuggets on a mini biscuit, and they are GOOD!
We also like Chick Fil A because their employees are clean-cut and speak English.
A+++ i honestly do not understand how they think laws are going to prevent things like this from happening. it makes ZERO sense. a madman intent on carnage is going to bring it about regardless of what laws are extant.
They are the only chain in our area where suburban teenagers can get a job. AND they close on sundays. I think Truett Cathy deserves kudos. and there is not a piece of chicken on this planet that tastes better than one of their nuggets.
There is a Chick-Fil-A in Coral Springs, my new home town.
Chick-Fil-A has become an anathema in my OLD Home Town, because they espouse the attributes of Free Enterprise, Family Values, and Hard Work.
Boston has now become an Anathema to ME!
I visited Boston this past spring for the NCAA semifinals for the first time ever, and i really enjoyed it. It’s a nice place to visit but i wouldn’t want to live there!
Their Mayor, Tom Menino, has been in office for nearly twenty years. He has decided to ban Chick-Fil-A from the city because he claims they are “unfair” to homosexuals.
The city itself, though, is quite lovely.
i pray you are correct! A+++
No, i saw that and it’s lamentable, that’s why i said what i did about him also banning the catholic church, since the church holds the same views. The Freedom Trail is def worth seeing! My family made such fun of me bc i was intent on seeing the liberty tree. we found that all that’s left is a plaque commemorating where it stood, in Boston Common. i made do with that ; )
Obama, my all-time anathema
You speak, I develop arrhythmia
Each syllable’s sounding
Increases the pounding
Thou demon, thou horror: thou hath a ma?
