Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “slow2” came with a note that “This is a new version of a 10-year-old joke, with script brought up to date and a technical issue fixed.” The up-to-date bit involves the report, which I discussed yesterday, that England and Wales now have more “nones” than Christians. The “nones” in […]

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “seek,” came with the email note, “Somebody called William Lane Craig argues something like this.” As one reader commented to the artist, “You’re not making me laugh, you’re making me grunt with resigned appreciation of what you’re making painfully clear.” And he called for more laughter. But I like […]
The latest Jesus and Mo is called “course,” and the email came with the note, “It’s a very bad habit those Bangladeshi Islamists have got.” It’s a bit of a groaner, but it has a good double entendre and the point stands; when you can’t win the war of ideas, simply kill your opponent. I’m […]
Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “gaze,” is especially appropriate in light of last Saturday’s debate between Asra Nomani and Hoda Katebi on the significance of the hijab. Here are the three reasons why, as fashion-blogger Katebi wrote on her blog, she wears the hijab (the niqab, remember, covers part of the face rather than the hair, but […]
Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “dippy”, is a bit of a mystery to me.
Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “sitcom,” came with this note from the author: Is Mo pretending to be stupid? I have no idea. This one was inspired by British MP Rupa Huq’s complaint about a popular sitcom called Citizen Khan. The link goes to an Express & Star piece on the show, and Rupa Huq […]
This week’s Jesus and Mo panel was inspired by this inadvertently hilarious poster: And the strip (no comment needed):
The Jesus and Mo artist is “back from hols” and presents a brand-new strip. And indeed, Mo has a faux-credible argument that cartoons mocking Islam or Muhammad directly incite violence. It’s just that they do so in the reverse way:
This strip “plan 2,” is 9 years old but the author informs us it’s been slightly edited. No matter—it’s still timely. And the whole Easter story and the salvific effects of Jesus (aka God) being crucified has never made any sense to me. I suppose that senselessness makes it even more plausible to a Sophisticated Theologian™. […]
This week the Jesus and Mo artist, clearly working quickly, has produced a cartoon called “long”, with the subtitle “Spare a thought for Islam. Islam is really suffering.” I’ve already seen sentiments similar to Mo’s cropping up here and there.
