Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Nice Things

I have to say that this is the first Jesus and Mo strip (called “nice”) that I don’t really get. It’s a repeat: as the author noted in the email: I’m away again this week, so here’s an old one from 2008. It’s not funny. It’s a tribute to Kurt Vonnegut, who wrote the words in […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ free speech

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “sing”, came with the note, “It’s been a while since we did an X-factor strip.” It forms an argument for freedom of speech, and remember that Christians and especially Muslims consider criticism of their faith to be “hate speech”. For those who call for punching Nazis, should Muslims […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ morals

The “new” Jesus and Mo strip, called “spin,” is actually a resurrection from 2008, as the author is, as they say, “on hols”. Since this site began in 2009, I won’t have posted it before. In the intervening years, of course, “retard” has become a word one shouldn’t use.  

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ niqabis

This week’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “fan,” came with the email note: BBC3 released a niqab-normalising video last week, trying to convince that the deeply misogynistic garment is actually quite cute and radical. The young women featured seem nice. We can only hope they grow out of it eventually, in the same way as goths usually do. Here’s […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ smarts

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “bad,” came with this email note: I don’t think it’s a good idea for atheists to make a big deal of religion/intelligence research. But it’s okay for a gag. I agree with the artist, as there’s no useful point to emphasizing the correlation, even if it’s real. If Jesus is […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Dawkins

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “police,” came with the note, “Maybe it’s time for Jesus & Mo to no-platform the barmaid?” I suspect those words, and the strip, refers to Richard Dawkins’s no-platforming by the Berkeley radio station KPFA. It can’t be said too often that criticizing ideas is not the same thing as […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ homophobia

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “homo”, came with this note: Today’s strip is inspired by something that happened at last week’s London Pride march. What happened is that ex-Muslims at the march were accused of “Islamophobia” by the East London Mosque because they were carrying signs that indicted Islamic countries and mosques for demonizing […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ pseudoscience

The new Jesus and Mo strip called “gross”, came with a caption, “Have you ever seen a creationist making fun of a flat-earther? It really happens!” It amazes me sometimes how even supposedly enlightened Christians refuse to accept the Adam and Eve story as a man-made fiction. The Catholic Church, which everyone thinks is okay with […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ fertilizer

The new Jesus and Mo strip is called “spin”. It’s not one of the better strips, I think, but the theological “bullshit” decried by Jesus does mirror the apologetics of defenders of Islam like Reza Aslan and Karen Armstrong, as well as the spin put on issues like women’s subjugation by organizations like CAIR.  

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ abortion

The new Jesus ‘n’ Mo strip, called “wade,” came with this email: Today we return to an old theme, prompted by this article in Harpers Bazaar. (It’s about the Trump administration’s drive to ban all abortions, restoring a “culture of life”, and the dangers that this poses to women.) It’s worth a read! The figures […]
