The Bible's usage of the metaphor of the "shepherd" (aka, Jesus) and "sheep" (aka, the human beings) captures what Christianity is beautifully. I mean, what more could one say? I rest my case. Christians are sheeps. And like sheep, Christians become extremely anxious when wondering away from the flock. Like sheep, they are studid, fearful, and helpless. Like sheep, they can't survive without a shepherd. In the end, they will be sold to the slaughter house. On the other hand, I'm a stallion! I'm wild and free. Don't mess with me. And I too, will die one day. But I won't die in the slaughter house.
Mickey Rourke character in the movie, "Bar Fly" says in response to the question that he must hate cops-- "No, I don't hate cops. I just seem to feel better when they're not around." My point exactly. I don't hate the Christians. I just seem to feel better when they're not around.
Best wishes to all ex-christians.
