“I simply don’t know what God enjoys Zimmerman’s worshiping, because there’s no way that the God that I serve had in his plans for George Zimmerman to murder my son,” Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s father, told “CBS This Morning.”
Sybrina Fulton, Martin’s mother, said that hearing Zimmerman claim to pray for them daily makes her feel “sad, because I just don’t believe what he says. It hurts a great deal… I have a hard time accepting it because he also said that he doesn’t regret anything he did that night. I don’t think God would have him, in his plan, to murder and innocent child.”
