|For it is so written in|
Abomination is a term frequently used in the King James Version English translation of the Bible to refer to acts that are abhorrent to the Jewish and Christian, and Islamic God, a.k.a. Yahweh, Jehovah, or Allah. The English word "abomination" as used in the Bible is a translation of at least four different Hebrew words (related words shiqquwts, sheqets and shâqats as well as the entirely different to'ba) so, how exact can it be?
Such acts include but surely are not limited to:
- Images and other paraphernalia of forbidden cults
- The worship of heathen deities or heavenly bodies
- The practice of witchcraft and kindred arts
- Gross acts of immorality
- The falsification of weights and measures
- Evil devices
- Evil deeds
- Eating animals that are regarded as unclean
- On occasion, lewdness and harlotry.
- Wearing clothes woven with different fabrics
- Being disrespectful to ones parents
- Planting different crops in the same field
The joy of being a so-called "fundamentalist literalist", is that you can use the art of word trickery (which is not a sign of humor until after Christ) to confound the believers. That is to say, the act of eating shell fish or having a rockin' night of same sex love, which are only a "minor abomination" (insert Hebrew) are now conveniently and easily equated with the truly vile acts of witchcraft.
The Abomination could also refer to The Incredible Hulk's rival monster-thing.
