Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the sexes

In the latest Jesus and Mo strip, called “lives,” the boys debate the timely question of who’s a man and who’s a woman. The author included this statement in the email: A significant proportion of the political establishment seems to be losing its mind over this issue. To be clear: trans women are trans women […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ truth

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “source,” came with an email note, “Let us thank God for giving us all of those Perfect Words. Where would we be without them?”. And on the strip the author writes, “Yeah well, you know, that’s just like your opinion, man.” Apropos, right now I’m in a Facebook […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ hijabs

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s Jesus and Mo Day. Today’s strip is called “pout,” and has the caption, “Look at him pouting like a carp.” It’s in honor of World Hijab Day, which I wrote about on the day itself (February 1). For some reason Mo likes to demonstrate the value of “modest” Muslim dress […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the “conflict hypothesis”

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “kit”, came with the email note: “Science and religion again. And it won’t be the last time.” Indeed; one could have called this strip Faith Versus Fact, and I suppose it summarizes my book in just four panels. It’s a particularly good strip, but of course I’m biased. Voilà: […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ xenobots

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “wing”, came with this email message: A new one this week, inspired by this recent news article about xenobots. That article, from the Guardian, is fascinating, as it describes “machines” made from living stem cells of frogs, machines that move about under their own steam. And so Jesus and […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ evil

Speaking of theology, Jesus and Mo have a recycled strip called “evil2”, that deals with theodicy: the theological explanation for the existence of evil, both moral evil (bad people hurting others) and physical evil (tsunamis, cancer, and stuff that doesn’t involve bad people).  I consider theodicy to be the Achilles Heel of theology, for no […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ privilege

In today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “push,” Mo admits his Prophet Privilege and then makes a futile attempt to be humble: There’s a note about contributing, too, and about buying the new book: If you enjoy the J&M comic and would like to contribute to its continued existence, please consider becoming a Patron this […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Da Book

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “uncanny,” celebrates the holidays with a subtle advertisement:   LOL! There’s a Christmas note to the email: Happy Christmas to all our readers! You can buy the new J&M book here.  Who says xmas is too commercial? If you want to buy the boys a Christmas present, they’d love […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ certitude

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “scholars”, mocks the certainty of theologians and preachers. This unwarranted certainty is a theme of the new Jesus and Mo collection (see below): The email that accompanied the link said this: It’s been a while since they’ve been on stage. You can help keep help keep Jesus & Mo […]

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 […]
