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, […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ offense

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “phrase,” has Mo tricked out in a burqa, leading to a touchy exchange with Jesus: And if you enjoy these strips, you might consider becoming a patron at the J&M Patreon site. You can give as little as $1 or $2 a month to keep the truth and humor […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ blasphemy

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “wit”, reminds us that next Monday is International Blasphemy Day. Jesus and Mo try to hoist us with our own petard, but seriously, who has killed somebody because they deny the Big Bang or the truth of evolution? I can’t think of a single killing on these grounds.  

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the Anthropic Principle

In today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “night,”  Mo expressed firm belief in the Strong Anthropic Principle:

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ spirits

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “angel”, came with this note: Today’s story comes from behind The Times paywall. Summary: the Pope is trying to approve “spirit worship” to tackle the shortage of priests in the Amazon, and traditionalists are against it! I can’t get access to the full Times story, nor could I find […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ evidence

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “being”, once again highlights the bizarre world of theology. I needn’t expand on this, for it’s certainly true that many believers mistake “conviction” (or “revelation” or “feeling”) for evidence. And the last panel gives the whole thing a kind of ontological-argument feel:

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ burqas

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “safer”, came with the email note, “Burka time again.” Mo spouts the usual faith-kissing jargon, while Jesus makes some good points about the “protection” of the burqa.  As far as conviction for rape is concerned, most people think that sharia law requires that a conviction of rape requires the […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ accommodationism

Good luck: today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “wins”, has a caption with a link: Maybe they need to try the Discovery Institute? I can’t resist saying that religion has never revealed an empirical fact that science alone couldn’t find, despite God having many opportunities to do so. For example, Scripture could have said (assuming it […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ persecution

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “down”, came with the email referent: This week’s strip inspired by this article. The article from the National Secular Society, “Britian’s ‘Christian Right’: Seeking solace in a narrative of discrimination,” explains how some religious Brits are pushing back against the increasing secularization of the country. In the past couple […]
