Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Blasphemy (and a question for readers)

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “pure”, came with this information: “This week’s strip is inspired by the depressing story of a young gymnast who made fun of the wrong religion and is now being punished for it.” The “depressing story”, first published in The Sun, shows British gymnasts Luke Carson and Louis Smith, clearly […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Trumpf

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip is called “lie”. (I believe that Facebook removed last week’s Jesus and Mo post from my FB page.) So it goes. In this week’s strip, the ever-forgiving Jesus gets caught in a conundrum. This is a prime example of the “begging the question” fallacy:

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ modesty

Today’s Jesus and Mo comes with an explanation: Today’s comic inspired, in part, by an article in The Beast about a Playboy interview with a hijab wearing young woman. There are a lots of ironies on display here, and this comic focuses on just one. We’ve talked a lot lately about Muslim veiling and its reprehensible celebration […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Erasure

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “torah”, brings back “Moe” (my name for Moses) in a witty sketch about Regressive Leftism. I love Mo’s comment in the second panel. 

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ faith

Today’s Jesus and Mo, “wind2,” is an 8-year-old strip with new artwork. Despite the fervent attempts of Sophisticated Theologians™ to define faith otherwise, it always comes down to the definition given by philosopher Walter Kaufmann: “intense, usually confident, belief that is not based on evidence sufficient to command assent from every reasonable person.” This is […]

Jesus ‘n ‘ Mo ‘n’ Mother Teresa

This week’s Jesus and Mo is called “saint”, and is quite timely. In fact, the Barmaid’s remarks are accurate, at least as far as Monica Besra is concerned. I’m not sure about the guy with the brain tumor.

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Plantinga

Today’s Jesus and Mo, a strip called “son,” is pretty clever, as the barmaid doesn’t mean what Jesus and Mo think she does! I have to say that one of the most compelling arguments against a religionists’ belief is that, to defend it, they must explicitly argue, and give reasons why, everybody else’s belief is wrong. This […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the burkini

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip is a good one, particularly timely, and speaks directly to the notion of the degree to which Muslim women “choose” to be covered. When a Western Muslimah (not one in Iran or Saudi) declares that she wears the hijab “by choice,” I never accept that claim at face value. Was […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Moe

Today’s new Jesus and Mo strip, “policy,” is timely, and came with a note that “Moses is still hanging around.” And in this case he’s acting like a Regressive Leftist. I’ll add one note: the Leftist claim that Islamist terrorism has very little to do with religion, and in fact is due far more to […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Moe

The latest Jesus and Mo, called “ugly,” is a good one, with the Jewish “Mo” (Moe) making a cameo appearance. The strip came with this note: A new one today, on the rise of antisemitism. Here’s an interesting essay on the topic. An excerpt from the Commentary piece by Ben Cohen: Now, it appears, anti-Semites are being […]
