If there’s anything positive to say about the Westboro Baptist Church folks…oh, who are we kidding? There’s nothing positive to say about them, but they are certainly equal opportunity bigots when it comes to harassing entertainers. Their latest target: veteran country singer Vince Gill, who has drawn the ire of the extended Phelps clan, not for promoting sinful homosexuality like One Direction, but for having the audacity to have divorced his first wife to marry Christian pop singer Amy Grant. The nerve of you, Vince Gill!
As the haters congregated to protest Gill’s concert in Kansas City Sunday night, the entertainer strolled outside, as he put it, ” to see what hate looks life.”
Gill also had a pressing question he needed answered.
“Don’t you know that you fuckers are lucky that you don’t have a sign that says something about my wife?,” he asked.
“Don’t you know that divorce plus remarriage equals adultery?” a woman responded. “Jesus Christ said that.”
“Did he?” Gill replied. “You know what else he said? He said a lot of stuff about forgiveness, about grace. You guys don’t have any of that.”
Gill then gets in a final zinger.
“Are any of you guys Phelpses?” he demanded. “Or are you guys like the C team?” Snap!
