The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “merry”, deals with the unwarranted fear of persecution of Christians in the UK. Given Trump’s election, we’ll see a greater hegemony of Christianity in the U.S. as well, but given our increasing secularization, somehow I don’t think Christian complaints will abate.

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, “sign,”, was inspired by Donald Trump’s calls for a database of all Syrian refugees coming to the U.S.—and perhaps for all Muslims as well. Somehow the artist manages to make fun of Trump’s ridiculous plan and Islam at the same time:
New Jesus and Mo strip called “jump”, comes with the tags generation snowflake, political correctness, Trump. And indeed, he seems to be talking about Trump as an end to “political correctness,” which it’s not.
I’m back from SE Asia, but am horribly jet-lagged. It will take me a few days to recover and resume posting as usual. In the meantime, enjoy this comic. The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “furry”, shows Mo raising a few dumb creationists questions about evolution, although the “Why aren’t there furry Eskimos?” issue […]
Yesterday’s Jesus and Mo, called “busy”, came out a little late. Maybe I don’t get this one, but it doesn’t seem up to par for the strip.
The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “dear”, came with this note in the email alert: Religion demanding respect again, and getting it.

That study, from researchers in Helsinki shows that believers tend to accept other forms of woo, like the consciousness of inanimate objects like rocks. An excerpt: Researchers said their findings suggest people’s lack of understanding […]
The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “pure”, came with this information: “This week’s strip is inspired by the depressing story of a young gymnast who made fun of the wrong religion and is now being punished for it.” The “depressing story”, first published in The Sun, shows British gymnasts Luke Carson and Louis Smith, clearly […]
Today’s Jesus and Mo strip is called “lie”. (I believe that Facebook removed last week’s Jesus and Mo post from my FB page.) So it goes. In this week’s strip, the ever-forgiving Jesus gets caught in a conundrum. This is a prime example of the “begging the question” fallacy:
Today’s Jesus and Mo comes with an explanation: Today’s comic inspired, in part, by an article in The Beast about a Playboy interview with a hijab wearing young woman.
