Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ skepticism

Wednesday is Jesus and Mo Day, and today’s strip, called “guard”, came with an email note: Today’s strip was inspired by this book review. The book, “Not Born Yesterday” by Hugo Mercier, is on my to-read list. Here’s the book from Princeton University Press, and if you click on the screenshot you’ll go to the […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the pandemic

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “safe,” came with an email note containing two news links and a Patreon link: Of course, there are some who genuinely think this is god’s punishment. Here are two: Islamic scholar who called coronavirus “Act of Allah” gets infected The 11th plague? Pastor claims coronavirus is God’s punishment for […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ evidence

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “vain,” came with the email message: “More unpleasantness from the barmaid. Such a nasty piece of work.” This question might be posed to Dr. Egnor with respect to his First Cause argument discussed in the previous post.  

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ hatred

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “high”, came with the email note, “There’s a lot of it about these days. I’m sure you’ve noticed.” Indeed. In fact, I found the response of some readers to my post about “whiteboard girl”, who held up a sign saying that socialism was more dangerous to America than coronavirus, […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Pence

This week’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “grant”, comes with a co-writer. As the site says, Thanks to this weeks co-writer Carmine Sabia, via The Freethinker. The article, by Barry Duke on Patheos, discusses the ridiculousness of Trump appointing Pence as the head of the coronavirus response team. There’s even a picture of the virus task […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ blasphemy

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “lazy,” came with an email comment: God used to intervene a lot more than he does nowadays, doesn’t he? The country they refer to is certainly Ireland, where, in a 2017 referendum, the voters decisively rejected the nation’s blasphemy law, and that abolition finally took effect on January 1 […]

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: […]
