Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ “progressive revelation”

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “fancy,” came with this email note: Yeah, but is progressive revelation God’s idea, or yours? Theres a good article about the whole thing here. See below for the article about “progressive revelation”, which is pretty well summarized in the cartoon: I wasn’t familiar with progressive revelation, but Seidesticker’s piece […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Begging the Question

Yesterday’s Jesus and Mo arrived late because the author had email problems. And the strip, called “after2”, is ten years old. Still, it instantiates the true meaning of the phrase “begging the question”: assuming what you’re trying to prove.

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ blasphemy

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “brutal,” came with a short emailed addendum: “Today the boys are coming to terms with brutal history.” Well, in some places history hasn’t progressed that much,  Here, from Wikipedia, is a map of where blasphemy is outlawed, and what the degree of punishment is. As the article notes: As of […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ the sack

Today’s trenchant Jesus and Mo strip, called “burka”, came with the artist’s comment in the email: There is no punchline. That’s just the way it is. It’s not World Burka Day, but World Hijab Day is coming up on February 1.

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ murder

Today’s Jesus and Mo, called “fell”, is a bit puzzling to me, but then again it’s not yet 6 a.m. in Hawaii and I haven’t had coffee. Perhaps a reader or two could explain the strip. Why is “fell down” so important? The author’s email with the link came with this note: “Here’s that weird […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ The Protocols

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip—may it be the first of many more in 2019, inshallah—is called “alert”.  The good news: Mo accepts that The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a forgery and Jesus decries the rise of anti-Semitism.  The bad news: Mo doesn’t agree with Jesus.

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Irony

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called ploy2, is from ten years ago (the Jesus bit must be on holiday).  It’s a good one, as the “Santa’s-is-as-real-asJesus” trope has been going around these holidays. 

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ The Protocols

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “fits,” refers to the old forgery “The Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion“, promulgated by the Tsarist secret police at the start of the twentieth century and then later in the U.S. by Henry Ford, who had 500,000 copies printed and disseminated. It’s an anti-Semitic […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Aisha

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “aisha,” refers to Muhammad’s child bride, whom (according to the hadith) he married when she was 6 or 7 years old and raped when she was around 9. The note with the author’s email said this, “This is a follow-up to last week’s comic, continuing the theme of cognitive dissonance.” […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ conversion

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “part”, comes with the motto “They are risen”, as well as the email note: “There are lots more examples of believers turning setbacks into triumphs, but Sabbatai Zevi is a firm favourite.” You can read about Zevi at the link. At any rate, this week’s strip is a good […]
