Christianity is a blight on reason?

Christianity has held back progress since it's inception by Constantine?

How's that?

Is it any wonder True Believers™ are thought of as sheep, and never as loyal dogs?
Dogs are creatures of habit, and live by instinct, in or out of packs.
All domestic animals can show affection, and most wild animals are able to show a degree of affection when trained from newborns. Since they are wild animals, they are never to be treated as domestic animals, living in your home, they are only trained not tame.

Yes, so?

You failed to explain why 99.99999% of all Genuine Christians™ act like sheep....

... even your bible agrees with me, here! It says, in verse after verse, that people are like sheep...

... and it seems to **praise** such behavior as "good"!!!

Even your jesus character is portrayed as being a master over you sheep....

How sad, really.

To be a mindless sheep... what a waste of human potential.

You could be compared to a wart on someones finger or a corn on someones toe, either are a nuisance to put up with.

Being compared to a sheep rather than a goat is a much better comparison for a person who is obedient and needs some help. The Bible says, Jesus is the Shepherd of his sheep, and they obey his voice.
John 10:16

Claiming to be a subject of God's Kingdom's reigning King Jesus, does not make you so, you must obey all the commands of the Shepherd. All Christians will be separated into either sheep or goats before Armageddon.
Matthew 25:31-33

One of the first things to go, with religious indoctrination (brainwashing) is the removal of curiosity.

And without the desire to go out and ... see?(curiosity)

Learning becomes nearly impossible.

Curiosity strongly implies not knowing something-- if you knew? You'd not be curious about it, would you?

And religion destroys that all but completely.

It also explains why they are so arrogant... they think they already know all there is worth knowing...!!

... kinda disgusting, really.
