Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the gays

This week’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “yeesh”, is again based on a real event. And Mo threatens to report his pal! (Why are they sharing a bed, anyway?) I’ll add the creator’s accompanying email, not because of the unwarranted  encomium the author gives me, but to let you know that I did write the […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ NEWS (and crowdsourcing)

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “five”, is ten years old but still relevant, which shows you how little things have changed on the theism front. It also comes with some news, which I’ve self-aggrandizingly put in bold below. The creator’s email said this: This is actually an old one, from 10 years ago, except […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ guidance

Here’s today’s Jesus and Mo cartoon, called “poetry,” and below that is the author’s email. Happy anniversary, J&M!!! The strip shows the extreme danger of trying to inculcate someone into a religion by letting them read its scriptures without guidance. Of course, with proper guidance, such as you can get in a historically-oriented divinity school, […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ sunk costs

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “sunk”, came with the email note, “It’s another fallacy strip!” I need add no comment here:  

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ offense

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “cheek”, came with the email note, “Today Jesus and Mo have an argument about an argument.” It’s unusual for the boys to argue in this manner, and I don’t quite get the last panel, unless Mo, in light of the “turn the other cheek” dictum, counts Jesus’s self defense […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ “post-truth”

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “tribe”, (which makes a point similar to that discussed by Steve Pinker in his recent Skeptic article), came with an emailed explanation Today’s comic is inspired by a Jonathan Freedland article from April this year. And that Guardian article is about how critics of James Comey’s recently-published memoirs are […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Ganesha (!)

Ganesha, the elephant-headed Hindu god of luck and the offspring of Shiva and Parvati, is my favorite deity. Pot-bellied and full of fun, he’s also the god of wisdom and patron of arts and sciences. But I’ve never seen the numinous pachyderm in Jesus and Mo before. In today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “nose”, […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ ???

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “cruel”, implies that Jesus, as part of the Trinity, not only committed incest, but is his own son. At any rate, the artist is holding a contest for the word that best represents this situation; enter in the comments here and win a copy of the “soon-to-be-published J&M volume […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ evidence

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “flood”, came with an emailed addendum: There was a rabbi on Radio 4’s Thought for the Day last week. It was one of the better episodes, but he did make the reference in today’s strip. I think only UK readers can access it. Actually, I can access the three-minute […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the Trinity

I’m back from the dentist, and all is well. I even had a doughnut to celebrate.  Now we have today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “obtuse”. It’s about the Trinity, an concept that I have yet to grasp despite having imbibed a pretty stiff dose of Sophisticated Theology®. As for who the “she” refers to, […]
