Virginia Restaurant Refuses Service To Christians Over Beliefs

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Tuesday involving a Christian wedding website designer against the state of Colorado.

The court will be ruling on if the Constitution protects individuals’ free speech, and expression, from having to use their talents to promote causes that go against their deeply held religious beliefs.

The First Amendment

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

The radical 3 leftists on the highest court in the land questioned the designer’s attorney and insisted that if her client were to prevail, businesses would have the right to turn away people because of their race, or “sexual identity”.

In a glaring example of hypocrisy by LGBTQ activists in Richmond, Virginia, a conservative Christian advocacy group was refused service and turned away from Metzger Bar and Butchery last Wednesday over their religious beliefs.

Members of the Family Foundation were turned away from Metzger Bar and Butchery, not because of anything they had done, but because of their worldview.

Using snowflake management’s reasoning that everyone needs to be allowed to live in a perpetual safe space, never offended.

The virtue-signaling reasoning was posted on their Facebook business page.

Metzger Bar and Butchery wrote; “We have always refused service to anyone for making our staff feel uncomfortable and unsafe and this was the driving force behind our decision.”

The restaurant said that the Christian group made LGBTQ and female staffers feel threatened because of their beliefs.

The restaurant staffers believe the Family Foundation “seeks to deprive women and LGBTQ+ persons of their basic rights in Virginia.”

The obvious problem with the restaurant’s actions is federal and state laws do not allow discrimination based on protected classes such as race, religion, sex, and more, as defined by the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

WRIC reported:

A Virginia-based conservative Christian advocacy group was turned away from a local restaurant just an hour before their reservation last week.

A representative of the Family Foundation said he was frustrated after the group was turned away from Metzger Bar and Butchery last Wednesday. The group claims the refusal had to do with their religious beliefs.

According to Todd Gathje, Director of Government Relations for the Family Foundation, one of the owners of Metzger called a representative of the Family Foundation about an hour before the reservation time, saying that the group would not be dining in the restaurant.

“We’ve had events at restaurants all over the city and never encountered a situation like this,” Gathje said. “It’s no secret that we are very much engaged in the public policy debate on a number of controversial issues. But we never expected that we would be denied service at a restaurant based on our religious values or political beliefs.”
