Today’s “Word of the Day” is “anathema“ and it is a noun and its meaning is “someone or something that you strongly dislike/hate/oppose; abhorrence, abomination, detestation, aversion, antipathy; (anathema literally means a strong curse)”.

He was determined from the outset to destroy Obama’s work on Iran because, for him, everything Obama achieved is anathema.
