The Family Foundation is a pro-life organization that strongly advocates for traditional marriage. However, they were refused service by Butchery and Metzger Bar and were not able to take their reservation.
Here’s an interview with the president who explains what happened:

The restaurant in Virginia told the Family Foundation that it could no longer serve them due to their pro-life stance.
Victoria Cobb, the president of the Family Foundation, spoke with the Daily Signal on Monday as the Supreme Court heard arguments in the case of Elenis v. 303 Creative. The case is about whether a public accommodation law can force an artist to speak or stay silent.
According to Cobb, the restaurant informed the Family Foundation that it was unwilling to serve them. The group was supposed to be in Richmond, Virginia, for a party. Around an hour and a half before their event, Metzger Bar and Butchery announced that they were unwilling to serve them.
According to Cobb, the restaurant had done some research and learned that the Family Foundation is pro-life. They also stand for traditional marriage.
The restaurant’s owner then called the Family Foundation and told them that they were no longer welcome to hold events at the establishment.
The owner of the restaurant seemed more than willing to defend his right to deny the Family Foundation access to food. According to Cobb, Americans may have political differences, but they still want to believe that everyone can enjoy the same meal.
The restaurant posted a message on its social media page, which explained that it was unwilling to serve the Family Foundation due to their pro-life and traditional marriage beliefs.
The reaction of the left-wing media to this incident has been unclear. Are they going to be outraged by the restaurant’s decision not to serve the Family Foundation?
In a free state, Metzger Bar and Butchery can refuse to serve people based on their religious beliefs. This is a lucky thing for them, as even if they were to operate in Colorado, they would not be punished for their actions.
These laws were only made to go after Christians businesses that refuse to serve the alphabet community.
If the owners of Metzger Bar and Butchery decide to refuse to serve the Family Foundation, then they will likely suffer the consequences of their actions. In Richmond, there are likely many people who will not go back to the establishment.
