Jesus & Mo: Known

by Grania Jesus and Mo are revisiting the subject of Blasphemy again. Although this is a subject that largely holds no terror for those of us who live in largely secular nations; its victims are inevitably members of minority religions and they pay the price for believing in the wrong god with their blood and their […]

Jesus & Mo: Believing Moderately

by Grania To give you some background on today’s cartoon, in the UK, Prime Minister David Cameron has spoken about putting a plan into action to get rid of extremist Islamists. Click through on this link if you would like to read or listen to what he said. Here’s a sample: It begins – it must […]

Jesus & Mo: Your weekly dose of blasphemy

by Grania Jesus & Mo is being an equal opportunities blasphemer this week. The worshipers of Thor and Atum must be most insulted by this heresy. Thor, being a god whose fame has endured into relatively recent times (and not just because of the dude in the comics) is still honored by having a day of the week […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ ISIS

In today’s Jesus and Mo, Mo tries to exculpate his religion as being responsible for ISIS. And the inspiration for the strip was sent by the author in his/her email: Tom Holland’s article in the New Statesman is the inspiration for today’s strip. In truth, I’m not sure the videos have damaged ISIS’s cause. Perhaps their […]

J&M and the Gaystapo

By Grania Much as one would like to think that the new cartoon up at Jesus & Mo is satire that is all made up, or at least exaggerates reality even just a little bit for comic effect; this kind of conversation is all too evident on social media everywhere, and you’ve probably seen several […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Onan

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “Hear,” came with this email note: Reddit was the first place I’ve seen this comparison so well expressed, but it may have been made before. OMG, if any J&M strip can offend Muslims (and of course they all do), this one will surely succeed. But it’s a good one on several […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ respect

Today’s Jesus and Mo came in the email with the caption “Something’s not quite right, but they can’t figure out what.” It’s a good strip. Maybe it’s the barmaid’s next-to-last word. . .  

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “Defy,” came with the email message, “It’s not funny because it’s true.” And indeed, it’s both true and not nearly as rib-tickling as other strips:

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ prophecies

Today’s Jesus and Mo, titled “Proof,” came in an email with this note from the artist: “Someone Tweeted this argument for the miraculous nature of the Koran the other day, but I can’t remember who it was.” There are also timely revelations about science, for some Muslim “scientists” maintain that all scientific advances, including the discovery […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ hornets

Once again the Jesus and Mo author, in a strip called “nest,” manages to convey in four panels a complex behavior: the double standard of coddling the feelings of Muslims when their prophet is insulted, while turning a blind eye to criticisms of other faiths:   Reader Cindy, by the way, called my attention to a nice […]
