Sunday sermon: Rev. Anthony Evans Calls Zimmerman’s acquittal a license to freely kill young black boys


National Black Church Initiative president, Rev. Anthony Evans, is as outraged as most Americans with George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the murder of unarmed Trayvon Martin, 17, in February 2012 in Sanford, Fla. He feels the young Martin was painted as a thugh.

The Rev. Anthony Evans, President of the National Black Church Initiative declares “The church wants to make it very clear that we will not tolerate any violence at the end of this trial from any community – justified our not.  Our purpose is to lead people to God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  It is not to seek revenge.  This is why we urge everyone to pray for justice in this case and to pray for the soul of our nation –if this young black boy is found guilty of being a young black boy in America. Our young black boys must not believe that someone (white) will kill them for being a young black boy.  There cannot be any justice until you secure the peace.  In this case there was no justice so there will be no peace.”

The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI) is a coalition of 34,000 churches working to eradicate racial disparities in healthcare, technology, education, housing, and the environment. NBCI’s mission is to provide critical wellness information to all of its members, congregants, churches and the public. NBCI offers faith-based, out-of-the box and cutting edge solutions to stubborn economic and social issues.
