The Price of Compromise - #554

On January 19, 1861, U.S. marshals arrested Lucy Bagby, a black teenager living in Cleveland, Ohio. Born into slavery, Lucy’s only crime was seeking liberty in a free state. Although slavery had been illegal in Ohio since 1802, the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 required all law enforcement officials in the United States to arrest freedom-seeking slaves.

Lucy was just one of many victims of the compromise with the evil of slavery. In today's episode of The Daily Objective, Nikos & Brandon Lisi will discuss the importance of moral principles and how any compromise on them will only lead to more misery.
