Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Lent

The author of today’s Jesus and Mo strip apologizes for being late with the Lent humor. The strip appears to be unusual in that it’s almost straight Catskill humor without any explicit denigration of religion—unless that be criticism of how un-serious people are at giving up stuff at Lent. I’m off to see kea (I’ve learned that […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ FACTS

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “facts,” reveals that the pair know the epistemic weakness of the faiths they founded:

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ women

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “their,” commemorates International Women’s Day, but in the way that only these two saviors can. The barmaid clearly didn’t approve:

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ fake news

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip is called “six,” is a day late but the first one to address the American political situation, all the while bringing up an incident that pious but moderate Muslims prefer to ignore:

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ humanism

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “best,” came with this accompanying note in the email: This one is in response to a story this week about the British Humanist Association sending out books to schools in the UK, and the ironic clerical reaction to it. There’s a religious curriculum in these schools, and the humanists are trying […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the osculation of faith

The new Jesus and Mo, called “force,” came in an email with this message: Jesus and Mo should cheer up. The good old days are making a come-back. I presume the “come-back” refers to the recent deference of people towards Islam and the rise of the Right in both Europe and America.

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ amputees

The new Jesus and Mo strip, “limb2” is actually recycled from a decade ago, and refers to a website familiar to many of us (see below): From the email: This one’s ten years old. The only difference is Mo speaking a little bit of French (I don’t know why I think that’s funny), and the […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘ n’ fake news

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “fake,” came with the email note: Did this conversation between Jesus & Mo really take place, or is it fake news? Who knows what is real anymore? The strip speaks for itself, except that I’d add this about door-to-door proselytizers: “Have you hear the good (fake) news?”

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ niqabs

Just a reminder: the niqab is the cloth that covers the face (and not the eyes), worn with a hijab (head covering) as part of Muslim religious garb. Here’s a woman wearing both: Little comment is needed on today’s Jesus and Mo strip, expressing the hypocrisy of extolling such a garment as a symbol of […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ brain scans

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “drugs” is based on a Daily Mail report on functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the brains of 19 “devout Mormons” (what—no other faiths?). When the Mormons were scanned while undergoing religious experiences, like reading scripture or watching Mormon videos, the fMRIs (which show blood flow to various parts of the […]
