Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “kudos”, came with the email note, “Kudos to Judas! I wonder what he’s doing with himself these days?”
And of course Judas should indeed be praised by Christians, for without him how would the central story of Christianity have played out? Judas clearly had no free will, for his betrayal of Jesus was the result of either God or the laws of physics—take your choice.
I have to admit that I love the term “Crucifiction,” and I wonder why I haven’t heard it before.
