Vince Gill didn't mince words when he confronted protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church prior to his concert at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Mo., on Sunday -- and the moment was captured in a YouTube video, according to USA TODAY.



The site reports the country star was targeted by the fringe church, which has gained infamy for its strident anti-gay views and protests at the funerals of soldiers, because he has divorced and remarried. The church considers that adultery.

Gill split with Sweethearts of the Rodeo singer Janis Oliver in 1998, and he's been married to singer/songwriter Amy Grant for the past 13 years, according to USA TODAY.
