Vince Gill vs Westboro: He Wins

Westboro Baptist Church, aka the Frothin’ Phelpses, decided to protest a Vince Gill concert in Kansas City because he’s (OMG!) divorced and remarried. But the Grammy-award winning singer took matters into his own hands by going up to the protestors because he wanted

to see what hate looked like.

Gill is married to Christian/pop singer Amy Grant. He told the WBC protestors that they were lucky their signs didn’t say anything about his wife, and pointed out that they were pretty far from Jesus’ teachings before asking if they were Phelpses or

like the C team.
