He’s too busy helping the sick and destitute……….
…….sorry, scrub that.
Maybe God’s not up to it. After all, he supposedly created the universe, flooded the entire world, sent plagues to Egypt and all he seems good for these days is appearing on toast.
So does religion make you stupid, do stupid people believe in religion, or is it a coincidence?
God only knows!
I’m still laughing at last week’s toon!
You’re really going for the jugular this time!
It will be very hard to ever improve on this one.
EAB – love the toast comment 🙂 🙂
I thought he was too busy spreading the coronavirus along the pilgrims way
God works in myth-terious ways.
Jesus is a god—or one third of a god (see New Testament). But even watered down he can magically overturn human laws (I suppose). The comic strip is therefore slander and blasphemy. And your Jesus here is contravening the 4th Commandment. Another thorn in the author’s crown when he arrives in the sulphurous pit. Funny though!
God must be very busy sending thoughts and prayers.
I am not sure which commandment Jesus F Iscariot thinks Jesus has broken. Is the 4th commandment about the Sabbath (Talmud, Calvinists, Orthodox and Philo of Alexandria) or about your father and mother (Lutherans, Samaritans, Augustine of Hippo and Catholics)?
Just one more example of how hard it is to get sense out of the bible. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten_Commandments
Me et al. – Priceless!
Linking a bit to the last thread…isnt one of the commandments..
“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbours arse?”….
Oh my sweet Lady of the Lake and all the fishies therein, I am quite literally Laughing Out Loud! As if today’s comic wasn’t already side-splitting enough, the “toast” remark has reduced me to tears and the real possibility that I might not make it to the urinal! Thanks Author and E. A.!
So a reasonable person might conclude that Jesus and Mo have created God/Allah in their own image since he hates all the same things they do, but does nothing about it.
“So does religion make you stupid, do stupid people believe in religion, or is it a coincidence?”
Ritual and faith are evolution’s way of simplifying life a bit.
I think this is your best punch line yet, Author. Just superb. Bless you.
If I were religious (which I am not) I’d argue that god doesn’t worry about small blasphemies, or sins in general, until they build up enough sin-mass to warrant a good smiting, global flood, column of smoke by day fire by night sort of thing.
All seeing, all powerful, all knowing *and* efficient.
J&Mo are not very consistent. Just a few weeks ago, they were full of gratitude to God for replenishing their beer supplies at the C&B pub, even although it was Barmaid that put in all the effort.
DiscoverdJoys, a good smiting, you say? Perhaps such as the wholesale burning then drowning of Australia and the almost simultaneous [ignoring a little slippage due to production issues] Winnie-the-Flu or Kung-Flu-Whuhan cataclysm?
Could those be Signs of his wrath at the sinnyness of Man?
Or even, as you conjecture, the retribution for the accumulated blasphemies of all of us naughty people?
More praying, less Winnie-the-Flu? Maybe even a vaccine and a cure? Miraculously achieved, of course.
When did the god of abraham decide to show himself? He was quietly watching homo sapiens appear and evolve for 13 or so billion years. Enough rest you would have thought?
Luxi Turna, 99.9% of all people are stupid, or at least stupid some part of the time, myself included. Religion and lack of intelligence may have some correlation, but only weak correlation.
Religion is for the fearful and desperate, to help minimize both those emotions. Do you remember Pope John Paul II famously saying “Be not afraid”? I share those emotions at least some of the time, or at least I’m capable of them some of the time. However belief in the supernatural seems to be outside my capabilities. I might be happier if I could believe in a beneficent god and an afterlife, but I can’t and I don’t.
Funny that Mo is calling God a “lazy bastard.” Isn’t it J who’s the bastard? Or did he grow up in a place where all children born to a married woman are legally presumed to be the children of her husband?
Also, J is supposed to be one of the 3 persons in 1 God. When he asks God, “why don’t you get off your fat arse,” isn’t he talking to himself? (For what it’s worth, I’ve often asked myself this question, but it has to do with getting household chores done, not fighting blasphemy.)
Wonder if the holy ghost asks jesus, “does our arse look big in this”? Just a thought…
Blasphemy is the only truly victimless crime.
