Bishop T.D. Jakes of The Potter’s House in Dallas was admittedly shocked by the not guilty verdict given Saturday evening in the George Zimmerman case, and broke away from his normal message during the majority of the worship service on Sunday to discuss the case from the church’s stage.
Along with a panel of leaders in various professions, including in law and psychological counseling, and who are church members of The Potter’s House, Jakes hit on a wide range of issues that the court case with its racial overtones since last year raised.
“I cannot imagine the devastation of this man and woman (Martin’s parents), whose son committed absolutely no crime at all, walking down the street on his way to his daddy’s house with some Skittles and a soda, and ends up being followed by someone and ends up with an altercation with someone, and never makes it to his destination,” said Jakes, near the beginning of his message. “Those parents are left grieving.”
