Faith versus Fact talks a bit about the topic that the Jesus and Mo author covers in four panels in today’s strip: Here are some gaps that theologians still use: The origin of life The mechanism of consciousness “Fining tuning” of the laws of physics Why the laws of physics are as they are The […]

Today’s Jesus ‘n’ Mo clearly reveals that Mo is a Sunni Muslim. Remember that one of the main distinctions between Sunnis and Shiites is that the former accepted Muhammad’s father-in-law as the rightful head of the faith after the Prophet’s death, while the latter took Ali, Muhammad’s cousin and son-in-law as the Caliph. On such differences rests the bloodshed […]
This weeks Jesus and Mo strip raises the burning question: Has the Templeton Foundation paid off Moses?
The latest Jesus and Mo strip, “Glad,” is an essay on both Islamic offense and the Charlie Hebdo-critics who cry “Islamophobia.” More on Charlie Hebdo later today.

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
