Sunday night in Kansas City Vince Gill had a run in with demonstrators from the Westboro Baptist Church. Those are the people who protest at military funerals, etc. The controversial group was picketing the show because they say Vince is an adulterer because he got a divorce years ago from his first wife and eventually married Amy Grant (who was his best friend).
Vince Gill is my new hero. He didn’t hide…he walked out and confronted the protesters on the sidewalk. He said, “I came out to see what hatred really looked like in the face.” Bravo Vince!!
Westboro Baptist is based in Topeka, Kansas and is widely considered a hate group. It claims to adhere to the teachings of the Bible but it seems to me that it picks and chooses doctrine to believe in. Oddly enough, they claim to teach God’s Grace. I personally don’t think they understand what Grace is!
