Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Tu Quoque

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, […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Mehdi

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 […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the harvest

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 […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ blasphemy

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip touches on the continuous battle in the United Nations about passing anti-blasphemy guidelines. This drive is, of course, promulgated almost entirely by Muslim states, while the U.S. and other democracies have always opposed such strictures, peace be unto them. While at one time I was really worried that these “laws” would be approved, it now seems as […]

Jesus ‘n Mo ‘n’ Charlie (‘n’ more), part deux

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “race2″ has a discusses the burning question, “Is Islam a race?” As a geneticist who has studied issues of “race” (i.e., genetic differentiation among human populations), it irks me to see both Muslims and Jews described as “races.” Both are, of course, religions, and comprise genetically diverse populations. There are […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Charlie (and lagniappe)

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “Small,” is about as serious as this cartoon gets The artist is clearly still upset by the Charlie Hebdo massacre: I’ve about run my course with the Charlie Hebdo affair, which is pretty much over—until the next extremist Muslim attacks a journalist. There’s one more post about l’affaire Charlie on […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Charlie

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “nous“, clearly expresses the author’s solidarity with other cartoonists (and people) appalled at the terrorist murders in Paris. (Yes, the killers have now been identified as Muslim extremists.) In his/her email to subscribers, the artist says this: After yesterday’s horror, the latest strip seemed so trivial and inadequate. So here […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Anselm

In today’s strip, the Jesus and Mo artist picks out the fatal flaw in the Ontological Argument for God: Why not define the crisps into existence as well? I’m baffled that the Ontological Argument had any traction among philosophers (theologians, of course, are polluted by confirmation bias), especially after science arose. There’s simply no way that one […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo and cultural relativism

Today’s Jesus and Mo takes on the issue of human rights versus religious hegemony. Surprisingly, Jesus appears to be a relativist here. The author notes the occasion: Today is the 66th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Jesus ‘n’ Mo and the omnibenevolent God

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip is recycled (the author calls it a “resurrection”) from seven years ago (I had no idea it’s been going that long!). “Burn in hell” of course implies torment, as is clearly stated in the Bible and Qur’an. More Sophisticated Theologians™, though, have now reconceived Hell as some sort of “separation from […]
