“A Taste of Praise” is based on a true story. Danny Marcott declined to bake a custom wedding cake for a gay couple. His faith-based decision led to a discrimination lawsuit that threatened his livelihood and shook his family to the core. He stood on his Christan beliefs as the case made its way to the US Supreme Court. His decision to defend his First Amendment Rights came at a big cost. His eventual victory at the US Supreme Court was bittersweet; he lost nearly fifty percent of his business, but his family and faith grew stronger. His inspirational story will convict the faithful and stir the lost.
A TASTE OF PRAISE stars actor Kevin Sorbo and is set to start production in Bridgeport, WV in September 2022.
