I talk a lot of shit about country music because it’s terrible, and the majority of its listeners are why America is an anti-intellectual fartbox of little kids accidentally shooting themselves with their parents’ freedom guns, but let’s set that aside for a moment and focus on Vince Gill being a goddamn badass. Above is a video of him confronting the Westboro Baptist Church who, according to Gawker, decided to picket his concert on Sunday in Kansas City because – wait for it – he’s married to Amy Grant who was, GASP, once married to another man. OHMYGOD BURN HER FLESH. BURN HER HARLOT FLESH BEFORE MORE THAN ONE MAN EJACULATES INTO IT. HEAVENLY FATHER, SAVE US!
The confrontation was captured on video and uploaded to YouTube (by a user who claims to be against the WBC) and begins with a protestor asking, “Vince Gill, what in the world are you doing out here?” Gill answers simply: “I just came to see what hate looked like.”
When asked by the woman “What are you doing with another man’s wife? Don’t you know that divorce plus remarriage equals adultery?” America’s newest hero fires back: “Don’t you know you fuckers are lucky that you don’t have a sign that says something about my wife?”
Gill also lets the protestors know they’re lacking in grace and, then turning toward another protestor, says, while laughing: “I’ve seen you on TV, man. You’re a big dipshit.”
The glorious video ends with Gill asking, “Are any of you guys Phelpses? Or are you guys like the C-team?”
The best part of this video is that Vince Gill refrains from punching these fuckers in the face because that’s exactly how they make a large portion of their money. Turns out you can easily provoke someone to attack you by picketing their child’s funeral and saying God made it happen because sometimes two dudes touch each other’s butts with their penises. It’s a wonderful Christian practice found right here in the book of… *rifles Bible pages* the book of… *rifles more pages* Wait, are they using the King James or the NIV? An imaginary crazy version some bigot in the Midwest made up in his head? That can’t be right.
