The Republican Party and it’s members are not the “light of the world”… no light shines from the Republican Party, the Republican Party has been enveloped in Trump Darkness and no longer the LIGHT of Jesus… the light isn’t simply dim, the light has been extinguished…

The “darkness of the edge of town has spread to the main roads and highways and neighborhoods,” Brian Williams lamented. “It’s now at the local bar, and the bowling alley, at the school board and the grocery store. And it must be acknowledged and answered for.”
“Grown men and women who swore an oath to our Constitution, elected by their constituents possessing the kinds of college degrees I could only dream of have decided to join the mob and become something they are not while hoping we somehow forget who they were,” he continued.
“They’ve decided to burn it all down – with us inside.”
