Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Moroni

September 20, 2023 • 8:30 am

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “dull,” shows a parallel that angers Mo. But it shouldn’t if Mo really believes that the angel Gabriel dictated the Qur’an to him.

On the other hand, the Book of Mormon really is dull and derivative—the dullest scripture I’ve ever read, and that’s saying a lot.

  1. Oh, come on J-man – calling it religion is mean! And don’t you call it a cult either, that’s just ignorant.

    Mo knows it’s neither a religion or a cult, but is, in fact, a glimpse of the true divinity of the world and our place in it, and beyond.

    … not the Mormon one, the other one.

    Hope that’s clear.

  2. This particular J&M strip makes me want to revisit a certain episode of South Park (with theme music that has a catchy refrain: “¶ dum-dum-DUM ¶ Dum-DUM!” ¶

  3. That’s a good one!

    The Book of Mormon at least has signed testimonials from witnesses, which is more than any other “holy book” can claim…

    I see that our host’s tweets (or whatever they’re called now) no longer have the “sensitive content” label slapped on them. :o)

  4. One of my favorite passages by Mark Twain:
    “ALL men have heard of the Mormon Bible, but few except the “elect” have seen it, or, at least, taken the trouble to read it. I brought away a copy from Salt Lake. The book is a curiosity to me, it is such a pretentious affair, and yet so “slow,” so sleepy; such an insipid mess of inspiration. It is chloroform in print. If Joseph Smith composed this book, the act was a miracle–keeping awake while he did it was, at any rate. If he, according to tradition, merely translated it from certain ancient and mysteriously-engraved plates of copper, which he declares he found under a stone, in an out-of-the-way locality, the work of translating was equally a miracle, for the same reason.”
