Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ whitewashing

The good news is that my 20 year old car, with only 73,000 miles on it, passed the emissions test with flying colors. Back to business: This week’s Jesus and Mo strip (soon to be banned in Pakistan) came with a frustrated note: Phew. Nearly didn’t make it this week. The new WordPress update completely […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ evolution ‘n’ snowflakes

This week’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “flake,” starts off as the usual “refutation” of evolution by creationists who claim that the process violates the second law of thermodynamics. We know the answer to that one: evolution on Earth was not a closed process, and the order bought by evolution was more than paid for […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ obscurantism

Wednesday is Jesus and Mo day, and today’s strip, called “awesome”, is a resurrection, so to speak, from 2008.  Once again we see the fundamental inconsistencies of the central Christian myth, inconsistencies that have provided employment for theologians for several hundred years.

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ Irony

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “ironic,” is ironic in ways that Mo doesn’t mean.   

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ physics

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “quark”, comes with the note, “Refreshing honesty from the lads today.” The boys think quantum mechanics demonstrates “miracles”, but it really doesn’t, because it acts in predictable ways, and wouldn’t if there really were miracles. According to the standards of the government of Pakistan, my posting of this strip […]

Blocked in Pakistan—again!

Yes, WordPress once again blocked one of my posts, this time a Jesus and Mo cartoon, deemed as “blasphemous” by the Pakistani government. WordPress, eager to keep doing business in that censorious and faith-ridden country, gladly complied (see their note below). WordPress is of course an American company, but they’re glad to violate American freedom-of-speech […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ oblivousness

The latest Jesus and Mo strip, called “zero,” shows that the pubs of the UK are open again. Moses has also left quarantine, off to wander for a few more decades. As happens so often in this strip, the boys see the mote in another’s eye, but can’t discern the beam in theirs. And we […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ The Protocols

In this week’s Jesus and Mo strip, “climes”, Moses is finally leaving his quarantine with the boys. But as a parting shot, he pulls Mo’s leg. Moses is of course referring to the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a Russian Tsarist anti-Semitic forgery describing a Jewish plan for world domination. (You can find […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo (‘n’ Moses) ‘n’ validity

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “valid,” once again also show Moses, who’s spending lockdown with The Boys. Once again Mo dons a burqa in his failed attempt to show that Islamic doctrine, especially that regarding veiling, is essentially feminist. The artist’s note under the strip is “This is literal violence.” I presume that refers […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ carrying a big stick

The new Jesus and Mo strip, called “stick”, came with an email comment: Here’s a link to the verse in question, and interpretations, from the excellent WikiIslam site. That’s an excellent site, especially in sussing out literal translations and showing how Islamic apologists redact, rationalize, and distort them them—as in this case, where the Quran’ic […]
