Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ apologetics

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “why”?, is based on an article I discussed a few days ago, and the author sent a link in his/her email message: It’s hard to know whether the author of this article from the Independent is being cynically deceptive, or honestly self-deceptive. But it is significant that Mr Rashid […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ bigotry

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “clash”, came with the note “Jesus and Mo explain their dilemma”. It’s self-explanatory, dealing with something we talk a lot about:

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ driving

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “deer”, deals with the new law allowing women in Saudi Arabia to drive. The author sent a note with his email: You may have heard that Saudi Arabia is finally going to let women get a driving licence. Well, don’t get too excited. I read the link, which sort of […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the True Book

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “await,” came with the following email: If it wasn’t for the Koran, we wouldn’t know how important it was to believe in the Koran. Even if the Qur’an says somewhere “this book is true,” which it doesn’t, that wouldn’t make it any truer than the Bible, which avows its […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ straight talk

Here’s today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “little”. The email came with a note from the artist: I once saw a video of Medhi Hasan responding to a point made by a debating opponent by saying, “That’s really patronising.” This prompted a big cheer from his supporters in the audience – as if he had […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ butts

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip ,called “bum,” came with this note: From a story in The Freethinker, with a hat tip to Zoe Williams. And the email added this: There seemed like a feast of potential punchlines lurking in that article, but in the end I plumped for one which included my favourite word beginning with B (not […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ secularism

Give me the child for the first seven years and I will give you the man. —Ignatius Loyola (probably apocryphal) The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “pray,” is an artistic response to the news that 53% of Brits are “not at all religious” (higher among younger folk) and perhaps to the news that each week […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Nice Things

I have to say that this is the first Jesus and Mo strip (called “nice”) that I don’t really get. It’s a repeat: as the author noted in the email: I’m away again this week, so here’s an old one from 2008. It’s not funny. It’s a tribute to Kurt Vonnegut, who wrote the words in […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ free speech

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “sing”, came with the note, “It’s been a while since we did an X-factor strip.” It forms an argument for freedom of speech, and remember that Christians and especially Muslims consider criticism of their faith to be “hate speech”. For those who call for punching Nazis, should Muslims […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ morals

The “new” Jesus and Mo strip, called “spin,” is actually a resurrection from 2008, as the author is, as they say, “on hols”. Since this site began in 2009, I won’t have posted it before. In the intervening years, of course, “retard” has become a word one shouldn’t use.
