Vince Gill takes on Westboro

Vince Gill let his feelings about the Westboro Baptist Church be known when he confronted members picketing his concert in Kansas City on Sunday, September 8. Protestors were carrying signs accusing Vince of alleged sins. According to their philosophy, Vince’s divorce from his first wife and subsequent marriage to wife Amy Grant is adultery.

Vince was visibly angry as he confronted the group on the sidewalk. “I just came to see what hate looked like,” he said.

Watch Vince confront the Westboro Baptist Church below:

As protestors taunted Vince about his marriage and beliefs, including citing the Bible and the words of Jesus Christ, Vince replied “You know what else he said? He said a lot of stuff about forgiveness, about grace . . . you guys don’t have any of it.”

Wow- This so called church sickens me.  Their threats to picket military funerals and the reality that sometimes they do show has completely out of bounds.  Good for Vince!

Good for him! These people are disgusting, and such a waste, but I'm glad to see he took a stand against them.

Good for Vince. My uncle cheated on my aunt many years ago. I don't believe that God would have wanted her to stay with my uncle, be miserable and wondering if he is out cheating on her again. If that is what God wanted for her, I don't think He would have sent the wonderful man in her life she has now, to her.

Good for him. He seemed to be keeping his cool, too, which would be pretty difficult I think.

I kind of feel like he's just giving them more publicity. They get this all the time and it doesn't slow them down. It almost seems to feed them.
