Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “Only,” came with this notice: “Based on an old story from 2013.” Check out the link; it’s to a PuffHo story about a “women’s rights conference” reportedly held in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Here’s a photo. What’s wrong with this picture? (Hint; it’s not the Westerner in his flannel shirt): […]

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “Ditto,” reprises some recent research, which I reported about but can’t be arsed to look up. But can their beliefs be any more solid than they are already? I wonder how many devout Christians—or, for that matter, Muslims—could tell you what observations or incidents would make them give up […]
Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “Brave,” is perfect; there’s nothing I can add but to link you to an excellent Atlantic article on the Charlie Hebdo affair by Jeffrey Goldberg, “The dangerous myths about Charlie Hebdo” (h/t: reader Cindy). It should be mandatory reading for those thick-skulled PEN members who understand neither the magazine’s aims nor […]
There’s one more comic today before we get to the readers’ wildlife photos. Here’s the latest Jesus and Mo, with the artist’s note in the accompanying email, “The Charlie Hebdo issue rumbles on.” And allow me to point out the latest trope in the college I’m-Offended Movement: “Hate speech is not free speech.” Viz.:
Today’s Jesus and Mo refers to an incident that happened—can it be?—eight years ago. As the author notes in his/her email: Another old one today. Do you remember the story that led to it? I swear, if this strip were published today, the author would have to buy a Kevlar vest! (And Mo needs to […]
In today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “Fade,” the artist added a comment in the email notification: The best argument against either of these two religions is their own holy books. Sadly, nobody was there when Jesus and Mo’s own books were fabricated.
In this week’s strip, the Divine Duo discuss the Islamic State. The artist also provides a link to an article on ISIS with the note: Thanks to Mehdi Hasan for this week’s strip. If you read Hasan’s long article in The New Statesman, “How Islamic is the Islamic State?“, you’ll see an apologist tying himself into knots […]
There’s an old-new strip up at Jesus & Mo. Apparently True Meanings ™ are time-specific. The trick is knowing which True Meaning is the Real True Meaning. I suspect this can be deduced by means of Sophisticated Theology (also ™ ). (Readers in Pakistan and other comic-censoring countries may be able to view the strip by using […]
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 […]
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.
