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.

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Rectitude

The new Jesus and Mo strip is called ‘which’, and the emailed note says, “It’s the persistence of the problem of human fallibility again!” No comment is needed here. I’ll just add date from the 2013 Pew Survey in which Muslims in most Muslim-majority countries were asked a number of questions. Here are the data […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the Jews

This week’s Jesus and Mo strip, called ‘slip,” came with this email note: “A new one this week, continuing the long J&M tradition of mocking sacred figureheads.” The website itself says this: A tip of the hat to this week’s guest scriptwriter, Jeremy Corbyn (who, for the record, I don’t think is antisemitic – just not […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ their petard

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “uh-oh”, acknowledges its sources: Many thanks to the Archbishop of Canterbury for co-scripting this week’s strip. If you’re too lazy to click the link, here’s the Torygraph’s report: The BBC should be legally required to treat religion on a par with politics, sport or drama, the Archbishop of […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Defamation

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “human2”, is a wry comment on Authoritarian Leftism—an ideology that refuses to recognize the part that religion plays in Islamist brutality. One of those news sources that self-censors reports on Islamist brutality is the Huffington Post, whose religion page is devoted largely to coddling Islam and telling us […]
