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 […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Darwin

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “tiny2“, is a recycled stip, and especially appropriate for this site. It’s also especially appropriate for those creationists, like Ray Comfort or the benighted gang at The Discovery Institute, who all see the possibility of “microevolution,” but argue that one “kind” can’t change into another. In that sense—in invoking unspecified limits […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ humility

The “new” Jesus and Mo strip, “pride2,” is actually from 2008, since the artist is on vacation. It’s about a competition between faiths, but it could also be a metaphor about the competition between science and religion to understand the Universe. “Humility” is, of course, a word much beloved by apologists—the supposed opposite of arrogant […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ The Regressive Left

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “track,” came with this email message: The Regressive Left is a useful term coined by Maajid Nawaz: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regressive_left No comment is needed here, but I’ll give one link that demonstrates the problem.
