The new Jesus and Mo strip, which the artist describes as “the waffle and dodge approach,” seems to me to parody the behavior of British Muslims when questioned about the tenets of their faith. Hamza Tzortzis, regarded in Britain as a liberal Muslim, for instance, has said that it’s okay to behead people for blasphemy and apostasy, because beheading is “painless” (listen to his statement on the Magic Sandwich Show beginning at 0:55). Throughout the conversation, Tzortzis waffles in exactly the way that the J&M artist satirizes.
And remember, you can donate to the artist through Patreon—as little as $1 month. He/she has now been pledged $659.41 per month, a pittance compared to what some people get who don’t do nearly as much. Further, the artist, unlike others, does produce his promised rewards!
