Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ The Regressive Left

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “track,” came with this email message: The Regressive Left is a useful term coined by Maajid Nawaz: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regressive_left No comment is needed here, but I’ll give one link that demonstrates the problem.

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Rectitude

The new Jesus and Mo strip is called ‘which’, and the emailed note says, “It’s the persistence of the problem of human fallibility again!” No comment is needed here. I’ll just add date from the 2013 Pew Survey in which Muslims in most Muslim-majority countries were asked a number of questions. Here are the data […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the Jews

This week’s Jesus and Mo strip, called ‘slip,” came with this email note: “A new one this week, continuing the long J&M tradition of mocking sacred figureheads.” The website itself says this: A tip of the hat to this week’s guest scriptwriter, Jeremy Corbyn (who, for the record, I don’t think is antisemitic – just not […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ their petard

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “uh-oh”, acknowledges its sources: Many thanks to the Archbishop of Canterbury for co-scripting this week’s strip. If you’re too lazy to click the link, here’s the Torygraph’s report: The BBC should be legally required to treat religion on a par with politics, sport or drama, the Archbishop of […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Defamation

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “human2”, is a wry comment on Authoritarian Leftism—an ideology that refuses to recognize the part that religion plays in Islamist brutality. One of those news sources that self-censors reports on Islamist brutality is the Huffington Post, whose religion page is devoted largely to coddling Islam and telling us […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Virtue

The new Jesus and Mo strip “crime” is a bit problematic to me.  If religion is a sham because it ‘tricks’ criminals into behaving themselves, why aren’t any forms of deterrence or imprisonment the same kind of “tricks”? In one case your fear of God keeps you lawful; in the other case it’s the fear of the […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Nones

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 […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ William Lane Craig

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 […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Bangladesh

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 […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ liberation via sequestration

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 […]
