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.
Today’s Jesus and Mo deals with the Islamic Human Rights Commission’s (IHRC’s) odious award of the 2015 “Islamophobe of the Year” title to Charlie Hebdo (see also the critical Spectator piece by Douglas Murray). And indeed, as Mo notes, these awards are presented in a pretty lighthearted and humorous manner. Below is a video of the IHRC’s presentation […]
Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “Ineffable,” takes a poke at those hypocritical Sophisticated Theologians™ who claim that we can’t say anything about God, for he’s a Great Apophatic Mystery, but then go ahead and tell us all kinds of things about who he is (loving, ubiquitous, etc.) and what he wants. (And yes, I’m talking […]
I am a huge fan of Jesus and Mo (and donate a small amount monthly to help keep it going), but I have to say that today’s strip seems to have fallen down a tad, for I think it doesn’t accurately portray the accusations leveled at atheists by religionists. Perhaps I’m being picayune dissecting a comic strip, […]
Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called, “ISIS,” came with a rare editorial comment in the email (I subscribe). To wit (I added the link to Hasan’s Wikipedia bio): What dark forces lie behind the fact that Mehdi Hasan wrote something quite good here? Or, at least, *appeared* to write something quite good… And the cartoon […]
Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “pick,” deals with a problem that I’ve written many words about: the selective use of scripture to either buttress your moral feelings or to distinguish the “real” from the “metaphorical.” But the artist’s advantage is the ability to convey exactly the same idea in four panels and a few words. Kudos […]
