A Virginia restaurant refused to serve a Christian group because of their pro-life values. According to the Daily Signal, the Metzger Bar and Butchery refused to serve the Family Foundation's group because of their Christian beliefs.
The Family Foundation was told that it could no longer dine at a Virginia restaurant because of its pro-life stances.
Victoria Cobb, the president of the Family Foundation, spoke with the Daily Signal on Monday outside the Supreme Court. The group was there to hear oral arguments in the case of Elenis v. 303 Creative, which is about whether forcing an artist to speak or remain silent in public can violate the First Amendment.
According to Cobb, the restaurant informed the Family Foundation that it could no longer serve them due to their Christian beliefs. The group was supposed to be in the restaurant for a private party, but around an hour and a half before that event, the establishment announced that it was unwilling to serve them.
According to Cobb, the group was simply doing their due diligence and found out that they were pro-life. They also firmly believe in traditional marriage.
Cobb stated that the restaurant's owner called the Family Foundation and informed them that it was no longer allowed to host events at the establishment.
Cobb stated that the restaurant's owner was very willing to defend his decision to not allow the Family Foundation to eat at his establishment. Despite the political differences that exist in the country, Cobb believes that Americans would still like to eat at the same places.
The restaurant posted a message on its social media page, which explained that it would no longer serve the Family Foundation due to their pro-life and traditional marriage beliefs.
The leftist media has been strangely silent when it comes to this issue, leaving many wondering if they will be outraged by the restaurant's decision to no longer serve the Family Foundation.
The owners of Metzger Bar and Butchery are very fortunate to be in a free state, as they can still refuse to serve people due to their religious beliefs. Even if they were to operate in Colorado, they would not be punished for their actions.
These laws are mainly designed to target Christians businesses that refuse to provide services to the alphabet community.
If the owners of Metzger Bar and Butchery decide to continue refusing to serve the Family Foundation, then they will likely suffer the consequences of their actions. In Richmond, I'm sure many people will be outraged by this decision and will never go back to the establishment.
