The Westboro Baptist Church protested Brad Paisley's concert in Kansas Sunday night, but the country star decided to fight hate with humor.

The "Alcohol" singer confronted members of the contentious organization (described by the Anti-Defamation League as a "homophobic, anti-Semitic hate group") and even took a taunting selfie with members of the group, whose members held signs saying things like "God hates drunks," and "God hates f--s."

Paisley tweeted the picture, writing, "Westboro Baptist Selfie!! Or west-Burro(ass) selfie. Hopefully they can hear the show out here."

Westboro Baptist Church tweeted the link to a YouTube clip of their encounter with Paisley, admitting, "He mighta been mocking but he was certainly polite!"

The organization then seemingly changed its tune, tweeting the same link to several media accounts, asking, "Is @BradPaisley TRULY mocking Westboro Baptist Church? It's hard to say."

Hm, well, doesn't the expression of Paisley's face kinda say it all? In any case, props to the Southern superstar for keeping it classy instead of losing his cool.
