Today while finishing a task many considered outdated, I read the word “iniquity”. I found it used in a newspaper (made out of physical paper mind you) article about New Orleans. I’ve only been there once for a short time but I understand there might be a few dens of iniquity there.
This is not a word I use often but I always do associate it with a den. There are other dens of course but our small house does not have a den. Don't you need servants to have a den? I do have a man-cave area in the basement.
Accordingly to extensive internet searching (google search engine is powerful) it comes from “den of thieves” which was referenced in the Bible.
Now I can’t imagine a group of thieves using the word iniquity but I just do not know. Maybe I should take a trip to Scotland because according to google there is a “Den of Iniquity Tattoo & Piercing Palour” operating there.
It would be fun to create a den of bloggers. We could plot our posts together and keep a chest of comments. Late at night someone would break out singing 99 bottles of beer on the wall. It would be grand.
Oh if you are researching on the internet, don’t forget youtube. My searching on the phrase, “den of iniquity” turned up this clip from the past.
