Vince Gill Calls Westboro Baptist Protestors Dipshits To Their Faces

WATCH: Vince Gill Confronts Westboro Baptist Church

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.

    American Hero.

    That’s really all that needs to be said. Those crazies are complete assholes. It surprises me each time they protest some dead soldier someone with a bad case of PTSD doesn’t spray them with gunfire or go all farmer’s market on them with their car. Freedom of speech has it’s ugly side and Westboro tops it. I knew they were stupid but I’m surprised they call remarriage adultery as I hadn’t heard that idiocy before.

    • Pat C.

      In the Gospel of Mark (which I read again last weekend), Jesus called it adultery. So it’s not like these guys made that part up. Jesus didn’t say anything about persecuting them, though.

    • Technically, the Westboro thumpers are correct regarding the Bible and remarriage. See Leviticus, where most Christian fundie bigotry stems from. And Leviticus must be adhered to strictly, which is why I don’t eat shrimp. Well, I do eat shrimp, but then again, I’m not one of the chosen, like Brett Ratner. Ratner doesn’t eat shrimp. Say what, Olivia? Where am I going with this? Oh yeah, Vince Gill should be protested, because he’s married to Amy Grant, and she’s going to hell because she gave us “Baby, Baby”.

      • Pat C.

        Yep, I thought it was interesting to read in Leviticus that if a couple (no marriage exception) had sex while the woman was having her period, they both should be put to death – presented as a direct quote from God. The owner of Chick-Fil-A was lamenting “ignoring the Bible”, and this is yet another one of those things Chrstians ignore. I suppose it’d be hard for WBC to protest that, since who knows who indulges in that messy behavior?

      • My, wouldn’t the Westboro Baptist Church be thrilled to know that adherence to Leviticus means they’re actually Orthodox Jews? For people who profess to be Christians, they obviously haven’t read the New Testament – or if they have, it wasn’t with a fuck of a lot of comprehension about Paul’s dictum about Christians not being held to “the law”.

    • 50/50 odds I can find something in the Bible prohibiting whatever they had for dinner at the Waffle House after they were done.

    “Freedom guns”–you are a fucking genius. Never been a country fan, but now am a Vince Gill fan. I know I am going to get shit thrown at me for saying that I would love this site to have more of this awesomeness and a less tits and ass [I know, blasmephy] because you are a fucking rockstar when eviscerating shitheel dumbass haters who think they know what the fuck they are doing. The Westboro idiots may be low hanging fruit, but I don’t give a shit. It’s still funny.

  3. Griefer

    Westboro Baptist Church is a troll organization that stages offensive protests in hopes that somebody will attack them, so they can sue their attackers. That is the only reason they exist.

    • They clearly enjoy their proselytizing, though, and believe the drivel that exudes from their pie holes.

    • What pisses me off royally is that these fucks enjoy tax exempt status. They don’t engage in any charitable actions, aren’t inclusive of their community, and are a restrictive hate group who offer no religious aid or help to those in need. There are current petitions to get the gub’mint to yank their tax free status, and I’ve signed every fucking one.

      Tax them into oblivion! For Christ.

  4. not a vince gill or country music fan,but my hat is off to vince for putting these”Christians”(rofl) in their places! Everybody knows these people are just a bunch of cowards hiding behind free speech and freedom to assemble.

    • Why the fuck is it WBC’s business who Vince Gill, or anyone else, for that matter, is married to? Does it cost them money? Are Mr. and Mrs. Gill breaking in at night and stealing the grain that has been earmarked for the “Lord?” WAIT! I think I know…they lose sleep over it because they don’t dare look at their OWN lives!

  5. c57bl6

    I knew I liked Vince Gill. Heck of a good guitarists and a decent man. He handled that so well.

  6. kjflhfoighaghgp

    It could never negate the idiot tag team that is Coburn and Inhofe but in my view, that’s one small step for Oklahoma, one giant leap for country music kind.

  7. This reminds me of the guy I knew in high school that was highly, highly disappointed that Amy Grant transitioned from contemporary Christian music to secular soft pop. I think he feared for her mortal soul.

  8. Those guys just want people to attack the so they can sue them and become martyrs at the same time. That being said, I’m glad they exist. They’re a constant and vivid reminder of the dangers of religiosity.

  9. cc

    Not just my hero for the day but my hero for the week.

  10. One of these days, one of their picketing groups will either turn up dead or go missing. I can’t think of a single person that will be sorry that it happened, either.

  11. I still prefer Johnny Gill.

  12. Cock Dr

    Vince Gill looks like my dad.
    And my dad would very much agree with Vince’s dipshit statement.
    The WBC members are all dippers of shit….they love to ladle it out all over. Such are the irritations of free speech in an open society…the society that they so obviously fear & revile.

  13. JC

    I doubt that the WBC even believes any of their own bullshit. I guarantee that if most of society did a 180 and started to condemn homosexuality and divorce, they’d start protesting for more gay rights and freedom to end marriage. They’re trolls and parasites.

  14. MM

    Pssst….Westboro is in Kansas…not the South. Can’t lump all stupidity on Southerners.
    It would be like saying that all gossip bloggers jerk off to pictures of the Kardashians.

    • jason

      You beat me to it. We get enough crap without having to be saddled with those dipshits from Westboro. I’m going to go listen to a Vince Gill song and stare at my freedom guns now.

    Westboro baptist church originates from Kansas, which happens to be in the middle of the country, not the south. Do not assume that idiocy is in line with southern culture.

  17. His work is good.

    They should put on hoodies and march down George Zimmerman’s street

  19. stevebrt

    They can’t sue if you kill them all

  20. “But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.” -Matthew 5:28

    Sooooo… basically all men are going to Hell anyway.

  21. “A bitched shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord.” – Deuteronomy 23:2
    A bitched is a bastard, or someone born out of wedlock. Using this logic, orphanages and children’s homes that are Christian-based are hypocritical. Sooo…. basically all those nuns are going to Hell too. Shall I go on?

  22. “When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets: Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.” – Deuteronomy 25:11-12

    Sooooo…. if Amy Grant were to step in on this argument and defend Vince, according to the Bible her hand should be cut off. Yay, Christianity!

  23. ITT: We pretend that Westboro actually cares about god or gays.

  24. Has WBC ever quoted this Bible passage, like ever??

    “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

    Call me crazy, but I was always taught that it was the most important one.

    Aspect ratio… for fucks sake people, aspect ratio.

  26. Goose

    I just really hope, for the Democrats’ sake, that we can go bomb those damn brown people in Syria – Obama’s presidency depends on it!

  27. Middle America

    You guys attack Middle-American values and don’t even have the balls to include the name of the author?

    I guess we now have a website to go along with the definition of pissant.

    Perhaps you shit talk middle-america because you think that life is more about image than substance? Then again I’m guessing it’s the same reason you avoid your personal gaze in the mirror: As a means of having to face what a miserable human you are and what a failure your parents find you to be.

    btw….. It’s better to keep your mouth shut and let the world think your a pseudo-intellectual poseur than to open it and prove them right.

    GFY’s

    • At the bottom of the post there’s a link called “About.”

      Go ahead and click it.

      • Is there such a thing as a waste of idiocy? Since Middle America’s too ignorant to use “you’re” correctly, his major achievement of the day must have been to find a site that had the words “pseudo-intellectual poseur” strung together so he could cut and paste them here.

        Maybe he can check out the site later – if he isn’t too exhausted after his naptime and milk and cookie break.

      • anon

        HEY…don’t be ragging on nap & cookie time. Other than slow web access, it’s one of the few perks some of us get at work.

    • Get over yourself, Middle America. The only reason you’re called “flyover country” is because it’s far more expensive to fly around you.

  28. gigi

    I just want to know why these inbred f*ers get so much air time. They’ve been stale since the first time they made themselves known. Meh…..

  29. lori

    “That’s why America is an anti-intellectual fartbox of little kids accidentally shooting themselves with their parents’ freedom guns”… Oh man. That is priceless right there. That is why I keep coming back to this site. Because, goddamit, Superficial Writer, you are f*cking hilarious!!!

  30. me

    What a great time to not only attack Westboro, but all Christ loving people as well. Congrats everyone for lumping us all together. Funny, but I didn’t see the National Atheists Organization running over to Oklahoma and helping out victims of a tornado. I don’t see Atheists on tv preaching to others to share love, help your neighbor, be a good person, be good to your family. I’m an imperfect Christian, but pretty sure even God evolves with the times. We stick to certain standards that are proven (like the ten commandments) and yes, unlike Muslims, we ignore. The Bible is contradictory, no doubt, but most of that stuff was written for those times. However, if you read more than the texts that contradict the times of today, you will see we actually share the same problems of the day and there is a lot of wisdom in the resolutions. You have to be open-minded to be a Christian and let the bible and God speak to you how it needs to, not in complete absolutes. There were two absolutes 1. Do not blaspheme the Holy Spirit and 2. Love your neighbor. You don’t have to believe, but why crush people that have chosen this path? We are not hurting you and we do not start wars, powerful men with money and control start wars.

    • You’re full of crap. And you guys are the biggest starters of wars. Read a history book.
      Also, atheists are sweethearts who do good things ALTRUISTICALLY.
      You can’t say that, since you do good things specifically to score a seat in Heaven.
      Plplplplplplplp

  31. I’m really sad…I think this means I’m a bastard.

  32. It would be unfortunate if some group of soldiers, special ops maybe, accidentally killed all these fuckers. Can’t sue you when they are all dead. Too bad we can’t name these fuckers a terrorist organization and send them to the lower hell of some Super Max prison.

  33. Jenn

    Westboro is like that whiny kid on the playground that taunts you every time you get on the swings but is never brave enough to put their hands on you so you can be justified in kicking their ass. Of course there’s always the “accidental” tripping and falling with your fists aimed at their face trick.

    If my 3rd grade teacher is reading this, I NEVER did that. Ever. Honestly.

  34. Bubba

    You mean rap music is generating kind, decent kids with respect for society and country music screwed that all up?

  35. ken

    I wonder if you could provoke one of their members into punching you…. then sue their organization.

  36. I remember reading an article a few years ago stating that a Baptist minister was fining people in his church $1500 for masturbation if caught. They laid the law down that only men can do that if they are over 65 years of age and a widower. Seig heil assholes. I bet you that the minister is one of those offenders. Pay up fool. Go Vince go.

  37. And your anti-southern, anti-Christian, anti-country music comment makes you a much better person than those bigoted, prejudiced Westboro people.
    Pot, meet kettle.

  38. This makes him a lot cooler. Right on. I met her when I was a kid and I have vague memories of her being a very sweet lady.
