NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A church pastor in Nashville said his congregation should boycott the state of Florida altogether in response to the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman case.

The pastor said members of his church should not go to the state of Florida altogether, to avoid what he called being "embarrassed."

Virtually everyone at the Corinthian Baptist Church said they disagreed with the jury's verdict in the George Zimmerman case, including young members, around Trayvon Martin's age.

"I said, ‘That's real foul right there, he basically just shot him in the heart and he got away with it?,'" asked 16-year-old Isaiah Caine.

The pastor quoted a member of his congregation who posted on her Facebook wall last night in response to the verdict, she said, "Before you go to sleep tonight, don't forget to set your clocks back 50 years."
