County Music singer,Vince Gill, walked outside of his concert venue in Kansas City, to see what "hate" looks like, that hate was in the form of the group called Westboro Baptist Church. The protesters agenda for the day was addressing divorcees who remarry, they want to inform Vince Gill and his wife of 13 years, Amy Grant, that marrying after divorce is adultery.
Gill divorced in 1998, he was married to Janis Oliver of Sweethearts of the Rodeo for 18 years. Grant divorced in 1999, she was married to singer-songwriter Gary Chapman for 17 years of marriage. Gill and Grant have now been married for 13 years.
The Westboro members are led by Frank Phelps, based in Topeka, Kan., are well known for their protests against gays, fallen soldiers, and other groups. They often picket funerals of U.S. soldiers killed in action and go as far as to say the children of Sandy Hook deserved to be killed. There seems to be no limit to their judgement of others and they blame these deaths on God's punishment for America's immorality.
The singer approached the hate group where a female protester asked, “Vince Gill, what in the world are you doing out here?”
Gill replied, "“I just came to see what hate looked like.”
“Well, more importantly, what are you doing with another man’s wife?” she said.
“Don’t you know that divorce plus remarriage equals adultery?” she responded. “Jesus Christ said that.”
“Did he?” Gill said. “You know what else he said? He said a lot of stuff about forgiveness, about grace. You guys don’t have any of that.” (See the video to view the full confrontation.)
