'This Is What Hate Looks Like': Country Star Vince Gill Blasts Westboro Protesters
When some members of the controversial Westboro Baptist Church confronted country music superstar Vince Gill before a show in Kansas City recently, the artist took the opportunity to give them a piece of his mind. The encounter was caught on camera.
"What are you doing out here, Vince Gill?" one of the protesters demanded. "Oh, I just came out to see what hate looks like," he fired back.
The protester continued prodding Gill, asking him what he was doing "with another man's wife," referring to fellow singer Amy Grant, his second wife to whom he's been married for 13 years.
"Don't you know that divorce plus remarriage equals adultery? ... Jesus Christ said that."
"Oh, did he really?" Gill retorted. "You know what else he said? He said a lot of stuff about forgiveness, about grace. And you guys don't have any of that."
