Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ apophatic nonsense

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “tell2,” is appropriately described as “a resurrection from 2009”. Take that, David Bentley Hart and Karen Armstrong! They may not say they’re apophatic, but their obscurantism means that they really are, for what they say about God is so flaccid and unspecific that they might as well be saying […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ The Star of Confirmation

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip (banned in Pakistan!), called “star,” gives a good example of confirmation biology  

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ evolution

“Kids”, the new Jesus and Mo cartoon, whose reproduction got this website entirely banned in Pakistan for “hurting the sentiments of Muslims” (WordPress did the banning at the behest of the Pakistani government), is about evolution. As the author said in the accompanying email, “If humans are evolved from animals, how come there are still […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ mistakes

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “errors”, comes pretty close to the kind of tautological arguments made by very orthodox Christians and Muslims. For Christians—not so much Muslims—some of those scriptural errors, which are real (e.g., the absence of a Roman census around the time of Jesus’s birth, the absence of evidence for the exodus […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ The Monolith

This post will undoubtedly be banned in Pakistan, no peace be upon that vile regime and its oppressive faith. Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “stand”, was inspired by the tweet below: "Don't treat Islam as a monolith." – @CraigCons Small print: Unless it's to treat it as monolithically peaceful. And just. And merciful… — […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ taxes

It’s Wednesday, and that means Jesus and Mo Day, the strip that got this site banned in Pakistan. (I’m still fuming about that one.) Today’s strip, called “taxes,” refers to the UK, where “faith schools” are indeed supported by the taxpayer. It’s absolutely on the mark as Mo reveals the scam:

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ da jinns

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “jinn2” is recycled from 2007. “Jinn” or “Djinn” are, in Islam, supernatural spirits, either kindly or malicious.  This strip, like most, needs no commentary. I’m already banned in Pakistan, so what further damage could ensue?

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ those damned fundamentalist atheists

The latest Jesus and Mo strip, called “speech” came with a note: The original story is here. And that leads to an article in The Freethinker (click on screenshot to read the whole thing): Jesus and Mo’s reaction: This strip will of course be banned in Pakistan, the land of Outrage about Religion. But since […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Qur’anic exegesis

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “help“, came with a brief message: Book-chucking is now a trope. Thanks to Hassan Radwan for the inspiration. You can follow him here: @abdulazizbulbul/ So far I haven’t been able to find the inspiration offered by Radwan, except for an article at the Clarion Project that describes his view, as […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Reiki

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “trade”, came with a message from the pair: We’ve done Reiki before, but exorcism is in the news again [JAC: see here], and the irony of exorcists being sceptical about reiki is just too tasty to resist. If you don’t know what Reiki is, it’s a form of […]
