Today’s Jesus and Mo cartoon, “beard2” appears to be missing from the site, but the author notes that it’s a recycled cartoon from 2008. I found one from that year labeled “beard”, and here it is: Yep, he’s a wimp, and he reminds me of someone whose name I can’t recall.

The new Jesus and Mo was, the artist noted, inspired by an article by Maajid Nawaz in The Daily Beast, “How the Mullah Mafia is Destroying Pakistan,” an article I publicized on Twi**er (but didn’t discuss) last Sunday. It’s well worth reading, outlining the latest damages inflicted on that vibrant country by Islamic theology. These include […]
You’ve probably heard that flat-Earthism is in the news: flat-Earth-believing rapper B.o.B is having a Twi**er duel with Neil deGrasse Tyson about the shape of our planet. (Tyson also created a 3-minute rap, “Flat to Fact”.) I was also astounded to hear that there are still flat-Earthers around, and they have their own society. It’s not a […]
Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, “Anthem,” came with an informative sentence: There’s a debate in the England at the moment about choosing a specific English national anthem. Bafflingly, this is the most popular choice. I had no idea that the English were debating replacing their old national anthem, “God Save the Queen,” with a new one. And […]
This week’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “words,” is said by the artist to be inspired by a post of philosopher Stephen Law, “Pseudo-profundity—from ‘Believing Bullshit.” Believing Bullshit is Law’s own book published in 2011, and I hope to read it before too long. His post is in fact one chapter of that book, so you can read it to see if […]
It was a year ago today that the world finally became aware of the dangers involved in satirizing and criticizing Islam. The Danish cartoon issue in 2005, with its attendant riots in Muslim lands, and the 2004 murder of Theo van Gogh for making the film “Submission“, should have already told us that, but the real wake-up […]
It hardly seems a year since the Paris terrorist attacks on the Charlie Hebdo office and the kosher supermarket, but yes, tomorrow it will be the “anniversary,” if you can call it that. Today’s Jesus and Mo is about the cover of the anniversary issue, which I posted about yesterday and reproduce below. The email with the Jesus […]
The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “Reform”, came with the artist’s note: This is the last one before Xmas, and it goes out to Muslim reformers: Maajid Nawaz, Irshad Manji, Usama Hassan, Ed Hussain et al. They’ve got a lot of work to do. Encouraging fundamentalists to practise a more moderate version of their religion is a […]
I’m pleased to see that reader Sastra has won the Jesus and Mo contest, in which people were asked to give the captions in the last frame of this cartoon: The artist notes this: This is the winning entry in the J&M script-writing competition. Sastra’s entry stood out from among a strong field for it combination […]
The new Jesus and Mo strip is called “Worthy,” and I needn’t add any gloss:Note that there’s a new Jesus and Mo book out just in time for C*ristmas: Wrong again, God Boy.
