I love satire, it is often the most powerful and effective way to communicate criticism.

If you have never encountered Jesus & Mo before the I guess you have a few questions … there is an About that explains

Is that really the Prophet Mohammed?
No, it’s a body double. Mohammed couldn’t make it, as he has been dead for centuries.

Is that really Jesus?
Yes, that is really Jesus. I don’t know how he does it, but he always finds time in his busy schedule to appear in the comic whenever someone loads a J&M page in their browser.

Why is the Barmaid never drawn?

It is forbidden. Plus, I can’t draw barmaids.

Why is the art so bad?
Because I’m such a bad artist.

I find the comic very offensive. Can you take it down?
No.

Ah but perhaps the most important bit for me is the next point there …

Can I use one of your strips in my blog/website/newsletter/dissertation etc?
Please do. J&M is published under a Creative Commons 3.0 license, which means you can reprint, edit, translate the strips for non-commercial purposes provided you link back to jesusandmo.net.

Oh and least you not get the above cartoon, the original Saudi flag has a sword. The criticism here is that we have a national flag that sends a rather offensive message

  • Arabic text that says “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his Prophet.”
  • And a sword under it as a hint regarding what happens if you don’t agree
