Westboro Baptist Church Protest Country Music Stars Vince Gill and Blake Shelton

SEP 27, 2013 – They have been picketing pop star concerts like Lady Gaga recently, but now Westboro Baptist Church has been picketing the concerts of country music artists lately, over the issue of divorce and remarriage. In their sick and twisted logic, the reason why gay marriage is being legalized across the land is because both Vince Gill and Blake Shelton got divorced and then remarried, and that leads to Sodom and Gomorra, civilization crumbles, yadda yadda yadda. We have had legal gay marriage here in DC for years, and the sky has not fallen.

During a Kansas City, MO concert on September 11, 2013, Vince Gill confronted and talked to the protesters outside the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. The vile protesters were saying that "Jesus spoke against divorce…", but Gill responded by pointing out how Jesus also talked about "forgiveness, about grace. You guys have one of that."

Last Wednesday, when WBC announced they were going to picket Blake Shelton's concert because he divorced his first wife and remarried Miranda Lambert, he Tweeted back, "Blow Me". So it looks like Blake won't be taking any crap from WBC and maybe even takes a stand for equality and NOH8! JTMP will post any more country music star concert protests as they happen, so check back.
