MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) -- The parents of the unarmed teen who was shot and killed by a Florida neighborhood watch volunteer reject the shooter's claim that the shooting was a part of God's plan.

In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, George Zimmerman said he felt the events of the night 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was killed were "God's plan."

But Martin's father, Tracy Martin told The Associated Press that Zimmerman must worship a different God from them. And speaking Thursday on NBC's "Today" show, Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton said the idea was ridiculous.

In the Fox News interview, Zimmerman also said he'd like to talk with Trayvon Martin's parents about what happened. But Fulton told NBC she was "absolutely not" willing to talk to Zimmerman.

    We are mortals and we have a yes I'm going to do this or a no I'm not going to do this clause, it's left up to us. God didn't have anything to do with this.Zimmerman made up his mind he was going to kill that boy and he did. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you ". This is what God says to do. Did George Zimmerman do this--- No, he was and is living by his own rules.
