Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Aisha

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “aisha,” refers to Muhammad’s child bride, whom (according to the hadith) he married when she was 6 or 7 years old and raped when she was around 9. The note with the author’s email said this, “This is a follow-up to last week’s comic, continuing the theme of cognitive dissonance.” […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ conversion

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “part”, comes with the motto “They are risen”, as well as the email note: “There are lots more examples of believers turning setbacks into triumphs, but Sabbatai Zevi is a firm favourite.” You can read about Zevi at the link. At any rate, this week’s strip is a good […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ extremists

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “trick-2,” is an eleven-year-old resurrection, but is still relevant today, since the tropes of Stalin and Pol Pot—not to mention Hitler—are still used to defend religion and attack atheism. The artist’s point is a good one, made even more trenchant by realizing that while ISIS and Fred Phelps damn others […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ wisdom

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “born,” is a bit convoluted, and to my mind is not as funny or incisive as some previous strips. However, Jesus and Mo has been going for 13 years, so the artist is allowed to have an off day. In honor of the strip’s 13th birthday on Friday, […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ certainty

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “mate”, came with a note that the author is “Fairly certain this is a new one.” Well, the author can’t be blamed given that in nine days the strip will celebrate its 13th birthday—that’s a lot of strips (and a lot of outraged religionists). You can become a patron […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Xmas Wars

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “plays,” deals with the annual Dueling Persecution of Christians vs. Muslims. BTW, the strip will be all of 13 years old on November 23. You can become a Patreon here, and there’s a special offer if you donate $4 per month or more: LIMITED TIME PATREON OFFER From now until […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the gays

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “heat”, came with a note:  “This is the story, from The Freethinker.” That link reports on a Malaysian politician who blamed an earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia (thousands were killed) on Allah’s wrath on the gays. Jesus and Mo discuss it, and I think this is one of […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ faith

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “sorted” is followed by the ominous note “Then Mormonism.” But I think they all forgot Raëlism! The Raëlian Movement teaches that life on Earth was scientifically created by a species of extraterrestrials, which they call the Elohim. Members of this species appeared human when having personal contacts with the descendants of the humans that […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’. . . could it be Satan?

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “laic”, comes with the note: “It’s another one based on that Pope report.” The report, from Reuters, is about how Pope Francis is blaming Satan (who must be more than a metaphorical being) for trying to destroy the Catholic Church.  Here’s a quote from the article: In fact, the pope […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Beelzebub

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “devil,” was captioned “That pope chap really believes in the devil!” and came with the email note, “The Pope really believes in the devil, and angels, as this nicely pitched Reuters article explains.” I’ll remind you of the immortal quote by the Alabama philosopher Delos McKown: “The invisible and the non-existent look […]
