Restaurant cancels Christian group’s event because eatery’s staffers — many of whom are LGBTQ+ — felt ‘uncomfortable,’ and ‘unsafe’ from End Time Headlines

A Virginia restaurant canceled a Christian group’s event reportedly less than two hours before the start time last week, and the venue said the reason was because the eatery’s staffers — many of whom are LGBTQ+ — felt “uncomfortable” and “unsafe.”

The Family Foundation — a Richmond-based outfit affiliated with Focus on the Family — said Metzger Bar & Butchery, also in Richmond, “refused to service our pre-reserved event, leaving us scrambling just moments before” the start time Wednesday night.

The Family Foundation — which advocates for “policies based on biblical principles that enable families to flourish at the state and local level” — added that “for weeks, we had planned a gathering of supporters and interested people in a private room to fellowship and receive an update on our work. About an hour and a half before the event was set to take place, one of the restaurant’s owners called our team to cancel the event.”

At The Family Foundation, we believe individuals in private business should not have to violate their convictions, which for some Christians means not celebrating what God has declared sin (Romans 1:32). However, most, if not all, faiths not only allow for the provision of services, like food, to those with whom they disagree, but they also encourage it.
