Blake Shelton is the latest celebrity to face the ire of the Westboro Baptist Church. Last week, the group announced a picket of the Voice judge's concert because he divorced his first wife, Kaynette Williams, before marrying current sweetheart Miranda Lambert.

"There's not a thimble's worth of integrity in these sissy-men who fill up the airwaves with their self-indulgent whoring ways," the Westboro Baptist Church wrote in a release announcing their picket of Blake Shelton's concert. "He panted after @MirandaLambert & 'married' her. THAT is why f*gs think it's OK to marry. Now he prances around the set of @NBCTheVoice with his devil-pretty mug sticking out, pretending he's not a vulgar adulterer hated by God."

But rather than simply ignore the hateful messages, Blake Shelton decided to fire back at the Westboro Baptist Church with his signature humor. When a fan asked the country star why the WBC would picket him, Shelton simply replied: "what? WBC is picketing a @blakeshelton show?" Oh no! Not a picket! What will I ever do?!! The dreaded wrath of the picket!!"

And when the Westboro Baptist Church's Twitter page wrote, "We know BS when we see it," Shelton answered, "Hey WBC.. I've got one more sin for ya... Blow me."

Blake Shelton's diss of the Westboro Baptist Church only got stronger from there.

"Hey @WBCSays.. This isn't about God," Blake Shelton continued. "It's about me using this opportunity to make y'all look like the absolute complete dipsh*ts you are."

The country star then seemingly threatened some of the protestors, though it's likely he was only kidding.

"Also @WBCSays... Y'all may want to keep an eye on ur women at my show.." he tweeted. "I've got a few band and crew guys that'll be smacking that holy *ss!

At one point, he tweeted a photo of a protestor holding signs that say, "Bill Maher Hates God ... God Hates Bill Maher." Shelton captioned the picture, "You know what else god hates? Inbreeding..."

Blake Shelton is not the only country singer to face the wrath of the Westboro Baptist Church as of late. The WBC also picketed a Vince Gill concert earlier this month after accusing the legend of adultery.

Gill then confronted the protesters in person. When one asked him what he was doing, the singer replied, "I just came to see what hate looked like."
