Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ relativism

Today’s Jesus and Mo email came with a message and a link that explains the cartoon: Saudi Arabia and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation – gifts that just keep on giving. If you go to the link, you find this: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) expressed its reservations on the remarks made, in regard to the […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the Mahdi

Today’s strip is apparently based on a true story, which you can hear on the BBC’s “Beyond Belief” podcast (go to 10:25). Wikipedia has a concise article on the Mahdi.  

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Charlie Hebdo

Today’s Jesus and Mo deals with the Islamic Human Rights Commission’s (IHRC’s) odious award of the 2015 “Islamophobe of the Year” title to Charlie Hebdo (see also the critical Spectator piece by Douglas Murray). And indeed, as Mo notes, these awards are presented in a pretty lighthearted and humorous manner. Below is a video of the IHRC’s presentation […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Karen Armstrong

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “Ineffable,” takes a poke at those hypocritical Sophisticated Theologians™ who claim that we can’t say anything about God, for he’s a Great Apophatic Mystery, but then go ahead and tell us all kinds of things about who he is (loving, ubiquitous, etc.) and what he wants. (And yes, I’m talking […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Tu Quoque

I am a huge fan of Jesus and Mo (and donate a small amount monthly to help keep it going), but I have to say that today’s strip seems to have fallen down a tad, for I think it doesn’t accurately portray the accusations leveled at atheists by religionists. Perhaps I’m being picayune dissecting a comic strip, […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Mehdi

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called, “ISIS,” came with a rare editorial comment in the email (I subscribe). To wit (I added the link to Hasan’s Wikipedia bio): What dark forces lie behind the fact that Mehdi Hasan wrote something quite good here? Or, at least, *appeared* to write something quite good… And the cartoon […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the harvest

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “pick,” deals with a problem that I’ve written many words about: the selective use of scripture to either buttress your moral feelings or to distinguish the “real” from the “metaphorical.” But the artist’s advantage is the ability to convey exactly the same idea in four panels and a few words. Kudos […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ blasphemy

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip touches on the continuous battle in the United Nations about passing anti-blasphemy guidelines. This drive is, of course, promulgated almost entirely by Muslim states, while the U.S. and other democracies have always opposed such strictures, peace be unto them. While at one time I was really worried that these “laws” would be approved, it now seems as […]

Jesus ‘n Mo ‘n’ Charlie (‘n’ more), part deux

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “race2″ has a discusses the burning question, “Is Islam a race?” As a geneticist who has studied issues of “race” (i.e., genetic differentiation among human populations), it irks me to see both Muslims and Jews described as “races.” Both are, of course, religions, and comprise genetically diverse populations. There are […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Charlie (and lagniappe)

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “Small,” is about as serious as this cartoon gets The artist is clearly still upset by the Charlie Hebdo massacre: I’ve about run my course with the Charlie Hebdo affair, which is pretty much over—until the next extremist Muslim attacks a journalist. There’s one more post about l’affaire Charlie on […]
