Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “gaze,” is especially appropriate in light of last Saturday’s debate between Asra Nomani and Hoda Katebi on the significance of the hijab. Here are the three reasons why, as fashion-blogger Katebi wrote on her blog, she wears the hijab (the niqab, remember, covers part of the face rather than the hair, but […]

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “dippy”, is a bit of a mystery to me.
Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “sitcom,” came with this note from the author: Is Mo pretending to be stupid? I have no idea. This one was inspired by British MP Rupa Huq’s complaint about a popular sitcom called Citizen Khan. The link goes to an Express & Star piece on the show, and Rupa Huq […]
This week’s Jesus and Mo panel was inspired by this inadvertently hilarious poster: And the strip (no comment needed):
The Jesus and Mo artist is “back from hols” and presents a brand-new strip. And indeed, Mo has a faux-credible argument that cartoons mocking Islam or Muhammad directly incite violence. It’s just that they do so in the reverse way:
This strip “plan 2,” is 9 years old but the author informs us it’s been slightly edited. No matter—it’s still timely. And the whole Easter story and the salvific effects of Jesus (aka God) being crucified has never made any sense to me. I suppose that senselessness makes it even more plausible to a Sophisticated Theologian™. […]
This week the Jesus and Mo artist, clearly working quickly, has produced a cartoon called “long”, with the subtitle “Spare a thought for Islam. Islam is really suffering.” I’ve already seen sentiments similar to Mo’s cropping up here and there.
Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “cult2,” gives the Heavenly Duo a moment of pause. One can argue whether either “cult” has a single living leader who claims divine mandate for his actions, but you can argue that below.
There’s a double-feature Jesus and Mo strip. First, the regular one, called “hide“, in which Mo decides to change his gender—but only to a limited extent: And the J&M author notes some flattering imitation at The Atheist Pig: a strip called “Pig in a Blanket” (if you’re not American, you may not know the comestible called […]
This week’s Jesus and Mo, called “heart”, is based on a BBC show that, sadly, is available only in the UK (link below). Apparently (and UK readers please clarify), two of the Big Questions participants engaged in shameful religious wish-thinking. I suppose the humor in this strip comes from Jesus and Mo pretending to refute […]
