Restaurant refused to serve dinner to pro-family group, canceled at last minute

by WorldTribune Staff, December 5, 2022

A dinner meeting for the Family Foundation of Virginia was cancelled an hour and a half before the event, after restaurant employees checked out the organization online and staff refused to serve them.

The Family Foundation of Virginia is the largest and oldest pro-family advocacy organization in Virginia.

The restaurant that objected to its Christian values is Metzger’s Bar and Butchery in Richmond, Virginia.

The event, “a gathering in a private room to fellowship and update supporters on our work,” had been scheduled weeks in advance,” and “left us scrambling just moments before,” writes Victoria Cobb, the foundation’s president.

The restaurant’s explanation was remarkably bold and transparent, and it is not a stand-lone incident Cobb warns, but part of a growing trend that has directly affected their organization.

“Their official explanation was that our pro-life and pro-traditional-marriage positions violated the “basic human rights” of women and LGBT individuals,” Cobb reports.

“Welcome to the double standard of the left,” Cobb observed, “where Jack Phillips must be forced to create a wedding cake as part of the celebration of a same-sex ceremony, to take an action that violates his beliefs, but any business should be able to deny a basic meal to a paying customer who holds traditional views about marriage.”

She warns, “Conservatives and people of faith need to expect to be cut off from services in the current cancel culture environment. They best know they will pay more for goods and services and their options will be fewer. While many may not experience discrimination yet, we recognize we are on the tip of the spear. Watching these situations across the nation and in our own sphere helped initiate the purchase of our own building, forecasting a day when we would no longer be a welcomed tenant by intolerant left corporate building owners.”

“This is the gospel of woke — the new intolerant religion controlling the left. Anyone who refuses to bow before their altar must be subdued, discriminated against, and punished. It’s a godless religion without mercy and without hope,” Cobb reflected.

“What human right is more basic than the right to life?” Cobb asks. “What family structure is more foundational than marriage between a man and a woman, the bedrock of Western civilization for thousands of years?”
