Zimmerman Trial Verdict Filters Into Pews And Pulpits

posted on July 15, 2013

In the wake of the  Zimmerman verdict that came in late Saturday night, Michelle Boorstein, Julie Zauzmer, and Hamil Harris of The Washington Post round up what some Washington-area ministers preached on Sunday morning, noting the pastors “responded in various ways, from delivering their words in hoodies to not mentioning the case at all.” They write, “Some pastors cited the biblical parable of the Good Samaritan, others the one about the suspicious strangers who spoke in tongues. Some took sides, others didn’t. But in many Washington-area pulpits Sunday, clergy helping congregants through George Zimmerman’s controversial acquittal shared a message: Ultimate justice lies with God.”
