Westboro Baptist church got quite a surprise last Sunday when they were protesting outside of a Vince Gull concert at Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Mo.
They were protesting because Vince had been divorced and remarried, of which they consider adultery. He split with Sweethearts of the Rodeo singer Janis Oliver in 1998, and he’s been married to singer/songwriter Amy Grant for the past 13 years.
As the video begins, Gill is seen approaching the picketers. A woman asks: “Vince Gill, what in the world are you doing out here?” His answer: “I just came to see what hate looked like.”
At the end of the video, Gill asks: “Are any of you guys Phelpses? Or are you guys like the C team?” That’s in reference to Westboro Baptist founder Fred Phelps, whose family makes up the bulk of the small congregation of the Topeka-based church.
Warning video contains strong language:
