(Newser) – The Westboro Baptist Church decided to picket a Vince Gill concert in Kansas City, Missouri, Sunday—and ended up meeting Gill himself, the Tennessean reports. "I just came to see what hate looked like," Gill says in a video posted on YouTube. Asked by one of the demonstrators, "Don't you know that divorce plus remarriage equals adultery?" (a reference to Gill divorcing his first wife and marrying Amy Grant), Gill responded, "Don’t you know that you f---ers are lucky that you don’t have a sign that says something about my wife?" Another of his pretty awesome zingers: "Are any of you guys Phelpses? Or are you guys, like, the C-team?"
