WATCH: Vince Gill Confronts Westboro Gang “To See What Hate Looks Like”

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!

    Before you go getting your head too far up his backside, keep in mind that his adulteress wife is pretty staunchly anti gay marriage rights.

    A Queerty correspondent or anyone should try to go to the free Hardly Strictly Bluegrass concert on 10/6 ( and try to score an interview and directly ask his views on LGBT equality and why he went out to confront WBC. However, the event organizers are not giving press passes so you’d either have to try and get lucky to get the interview or research online to find his manager or PR people to request an interview.

    @Fitz: Really, please reference.

    The really sad thing here is for anyone to use scripture to accuse others.

    Here are some things to consider —

    Jesus seldom mentions the word “sin” and almost never refers to it.

    Maybe about a dozen times or so.

    Probably because what may be thought of as sin to some, may not be to others.

    Seldom mentioning sin then is a good “role-model-example” for us, isn’t it ?

    So why do some use it simply to accuse others ?

    Considering our own should be enough for anyone to stop accusing.

    Jesus spoke much about love we all know.

    And “love covers up a multitude” of those things called sins.

    So why do disrespectful fundamentalists point fingers ?
