I suppose it’s natural for people to be fascinated by a notorious murder. After all, murder is the polar opposite of everything a human society ought to be.

But this is taking it more than a bit too far:

‘Depraved’ Starts Here

Yes! For real vacation thrills, you can stay at the Lizzie Borden house–it’s a bed & breakfast now–and even sleep in the bedroom where Lizzie’s stepmother was hacked to death. And if that ain’t enough, they’ve got a gift shop, too! You can buy bobble-head Lizzies with cute little axes.

I hope I don’t know anyone who’d want to do this. I mean, can you say “ghoulish”?

  1. Proverbs 8 is written as if wisdom itself were speaking. In verse 13 it says:

    “The fear of the LORD is to hate evil;
    Pride, arrogance, the evil way,
    And the perverted mouth, I hate”

    In verse 36 it tells us that all who hate wisdom, love death.

    Over time, I’ve come to realize that this runs very deeply. Death is a consequence of sin. It’s a sad fact of life in this fallen world, but it is a tragedy. The tale of Lizzie Borden is a tragedy. What is certain, is that Lizzie Borden’s parents were brutally murdered. Why would anyone want to be close to the scene where that happened? The answer is simple, they are honoring death.
