J&M and the Gaystapo

By Grania Much as one would like to think that the new cartoon up at Jesus & Mo is satire that is all made up, or at least exaggerates reality even just a little bit for comic effect; this kind of conversation is all too evident on social media everywhere, and you’ve probably seen several […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Onan

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “Hear,” came with this email note: Reddit was the first place I’ve seen this comparison so well expressed, but it may have been made before. OMG, if any J&M strip can offend Muslims (and of course they all do), this one will surely succeed. But it’s a good one on several […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ respect

Today’s Jesus and Mo came in the email with the caption “Something’s not quite right, but they can’t figure out what.” It’s a good strip. Maybe it’s the barmaid’s next-to-last word. . .  

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “Defy,” came with the email message, “It’s not funny because it’s true.” And indeed, it’s both true and not nearly as rib-tickling as other strips:

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ prophecies

Today’s Jesus and Mo, titled “Proof,” came in an email with this note from the artist: “Someone Tweeted this argument for the miraculous nature of the Koran the other day, but I can’t remember who it was.” There are also timely revelations about science, for some Muslim “scientists” maintain that all scientific advances, including the discovery […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ hornets

Once again the Jesus and Mo author, in a strip called “nest,” manages to convey in four panels a complex behavior: the double standard of coddling the feelings of Muslims when their prophet is insulted, while turning a blind eye to criticisms of other faiths:   Reader Cindy, by the way, called my attention to a nice […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ No Mo Women

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “Only,” came with this notice: “Based on an old story from 2013.” Check out the link; it’s to a PuffHo story about a “women’s rights conference” reportedly held in Saudi Arabia in 2012. Here’s a photo. What’s wrong with this picture? (Hint; it’s not the Westerner in his flannel shirt): […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Cognitive stasis

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “Ditto,” reprises some recent research, which I reported about but can’t be arsed to look up. But can their beliefs be any more solid than they are already? I wonder how many devout Christians—or, for that matter, Muslims—could tell you what observations or incidents would make them give up […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Ignoramuses

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “Brave,” is perfect; there’s nothing I can add but to link you to an excellent Atlantic article on the Charlie Hebdo affair by Jeffrey Goldberg, “The dangerous myths about Charlie Hebdo” (h/t: reader Cindy). It should be mandatory reading for those thick-skulled PEN members who understand neither the magazine’s aims nor […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Some Animals are More Equal than Others

There’s one more comic today before we get to the readers’ wildlife photos. Here’s the latest Jesus and Mo, with the artist’s note in the accompanying email, “The Charlie Hebdo issue rumbles on.” And allow me to point out the latest trope in the college I’m-Offended Movement: “Hate speech is not free speech.” Viz.:
