Country singer Vince Gill, who is divorced, was in the crosshairs of the notorious Westboro Baptist Church at his concert on Sunday in Kansas City, Mo.

A YouTube video of the altercation begins with a woman behind the camera, presumably a Westboro member, who asked the famed singer what he was doing outside of the venue.

“I just came to see what hate looked like,” he said.

“What are you doing with another man’s wife?” the women then asked. “Don’t you know that divorce plus remarriage equals adultery? Jesus Christ said that.”

“You know what else he said?” the singer responded. “He said a lot of stuff about forgiveness, about grace … you guys don’t have any of it.”

Turning to the other protesters, Mr. Gill then fired off: “Don’t you know you [expletive] are lucky that you don’t have a sign that says something about my wife?”

Lightening up a little, Mr. Gill then turns to one protester and calls him “a big dip[expletive].”

“Are any of you guys Phelpses? Or are you guys like the C-team?” he joked before the video ends.
