Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Paris

Today’s excellent Jesus and Mo refers to something you may already know about: the Paris attacks caused the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Least Reverend Justin Welby, to doubt the presence of God. The BBC recently reported this: The Archbishop of Canterbury has said the terror attacks in Paris made him “doubt” the presence of God. The Most […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Paris

The hunt for terrorists continues in Paris, with 2 suspects dead (one by suicide) and 7 arrested in a raid early this morning in the suburb of St. Denis. All of Europe is on edge, and the recriminations and kneejerk proposals pour in. But the latest Jesus and Mo strip, called “Media,” merely reminds us that this […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ respect

The latest Jesus and Mo may be a recycled older strip; I’m not sure. But it certainly is timely:  

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the “dangers” of faith

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “Even,” comes with this acknowledgment: Thanks to Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and Cardinal Vincent Nichols for their help with this week’s script. Click on the link provided to see the Torygraph story that inspired the strip. And the last panel tells the tale—the fifth death of a Bangladeshi […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ context

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “Value”, arrived with an email note: OK, last Koran one for a while. Don’t want to be accused of Koranophobia! Mind you, searching for good bits in the Koran is like fishing for prawns in a sewer: it’s hard work, and even if you find one, it’s tainted by the […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Xenu

Today the Jesus and Mo artist has reprinted a cartoon from 2008 (I didn’t know it had been going that long), with a link to Tom Cruises’s Scientology babble that is amazingly stupid. First the cartoon: It’s odd that Mo shows such self-awareness, or maybe he’s just completely, ironically oblivious. At any rate, below is the […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the Uncaused Cause

In this week’s Jesus and Mo, the barmaid asks those who limn Uncaused Cause arguments—whether those arguments are cosmological or invoke A Cause that Exists of Absolute Necessity—the fatal question: I’m chuffed that the artist said this at the bottom of the strip: “Tip of the hat to WEIT.” And I’ll insist again: there is no way […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Piercing

The latest Jesus and Mo cartoon, “Sore2”, isn’t for once a critique of religious doctrine, but rather a graphic joke, similar to the old Jesus joke: Jesus walks into a motel and throws three nails on the counter and says to the manager “Can you put me up for the night?”

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ human rights

Once again Jesus and Mo manage to encapsulate hypocrisy—in this case the UN’s appointing a Saudi diplomat as head of a human right council—in just four brief panels.  This one stings! The author’s addendum to the strip: “… and statutory tea-breaks for floggers.”

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Othering

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “Gulf,” includes the subtitle “Because that’s problematic.” If you want to see the Qur’an with its for various bits labeled as good and bad (but mostly the latter) head over to the “Skeptic’s Annotated Quran” page, which has verses labeled for content with these symbols:
