George Zimmerman believes the shooting death of Trayvon Martin was "all God's plan" ... telling Sean Hannity he will not second guess his actions on that fateful day.

Zimmerman -- who's been charged with 2nd degree murder for the February shooting -- broke his silence to Hannity during an interview that aired on Fox News last night.

During the interview, Zimmerman insisted, "I'm not a racist ... I'm not a murderer."

After the interview, Trayvon's father, Tracy Martin, had some harsh words for George ... telling CBS News, "We must worship a different God. There is no way that my God would have wanted George Zimmerman to kill my teenage son.

This guy thinks that giving nationally televised interviews before his trial is going to help him? Saying how is doesn't want all this attention but then broadcasting himself. His lawyer is completely incompetent.

If you watch the entire interview, he goes back and addresses the question again. He says he wishes he could go back and do anything different to avoid what happened. Obviously GZ is not a PR genius, but he's not a murderer either; especially not 2nd degree murder, as it is defined in Florida. Also, the FBI did a thorough investigation and found no evidence GZ was a "racist".

Another thing you will find in the interview is that GZ had previously been in the news for organizing a protest in a case where the police beat up a homeless guy, who happened to be a minority.

Anyway, resume the "everyone is racist" comments...

Nice angle, Zimmerman. Appeal to the bible-thumping, bigoted majority down there in your podunk town and HOPE you get some leniency. Disgusting.

Get a life........ Zimmerman was just as much a victim as Trayvon. Both made very bad decisions that day and the outcome would have been very different if Trayvon didn't leave his gun at home.

I cannot believe his lawyer said go ahead and do this interview.

His statements and actions will be admitted into evidence at trial.

Since when is it God's Will that one person takes another person's life?

And it must also have been God's plan for George to sexually molest another child for ten years. And for George to make over a hundred 911 calls that lead to no arrests. George has delusions of power and he's a murderer and a child molester. He's a danger to society and to himself. If he gets jail time, he'll find out more about God's plan for him.

He became a murderer as soon as he'd reached 911, was told the authorities were on the way and to stand down, but chose to continue his pursuit with a gun in his hand. His Neighborhood Watch duties were completed with his 911 call.

What a freaking psycho. Now GOD told him to do it?! He's crazier than I thought. They should lock him in a mental institution. Shock therapy!!

Guns are never cool. Nor is breaking into someones home. Raise your kids to be good people and avoid situations like these.

Very lame comment for GZ to make. Do I think he is racist? Nope. Do I know kids that age act? Yep, they are wanna-be thugs / gang banger who think they rule the world. I watch the news daily, just google SMASH MOB Walmart, look at the wild beasts...that's just the most recent stunt they've done!

Poor Andrea.. It wasn't in God's plan to have her teenage son murdered. It WAS in God's plan to have one less vicious thug bully on the streets terrorizing people. Trayvon's classmates have recounted harrowing incidences of Trayvon bullying gay and white classmates. It's all in how you look at it, Andrea.
