    J & Mo throwing stones in glass houses again

  2. Nassar Ben Houdja says:

    Today’s excuse for religion
    Is regurgitated superstition
    Fiction leading the blind
    Who pay and don’t mind
    Getting fleeced is a modern dude’s mission.

  3. jean-françois gauthier says:

    nothing like the power of prayer. @nasser: well done!

  4. Rebecca says:

    hmm, a superstition that claims there are good vibes everywhere available to be tapped or one that says I was born evil by virtue of my sex? choices, choices! as my great aunt once said to me: “I can see why people would believe in heaven if they could, but why would anyone want to believe in hell?”

  5. Dr John the Wipper says:


    From “Sympathy for the devil” by the Rolling Stones:
    “I swear there ain’t no heaven, but I pray there ain’t no hell”

  6. Tom S. Fox says:

    Why don’t you make a comic about Tommy Robinson, the British reporter who was arrested for reporting on the court case of a Muslim rape gang and will most likely be murdered by Muslim inmates? Oh wait, I probably just answered my own question.

  7. Chiefy says:

    Quite the “reporter” this Tommy Robinson. It seems he was rightfully sentenced for interfering two separate times with court proceedings. Ironically, such “reporting” could result in the Muslim defendant’s Tommy hates so much not being convicted.

  8. M27Holts says:

    The local authorities that allowed white girls to be abused en masse by Pakistani men should also reside in jail and the police who sided with the paedophiles because the girls were just white trash to them too. And don’t forget that although thousands of little girls have had their genitals mutilated. Not a single parent or guardian in Britain has been brought to justice. Flabbergasted? No it’s just cultural and religious tolerance of the Intolerable!

  9. Chiefy says:

    Damn! Spellcheck inserted an apostrophe into “defendants.” I could lose my pedant certification.

  10. smee says:

    Bit like the “time’s up” movement! One side attacking men in Hollywood for being morally bankrupt. Whereas in reality this episode has just demonstrated that its the denizens (both male and female) of Hollywood that are morally bankrupt. Too many male actors in Hollywood being mysoginst gropers and rapists, and too many female actors thinking their bank balance/career is more important than preventing sexual battery and rape!

  11. Thomart says:

    I will pray for all of you who have no idea what Reiki is and does.

  12. Laripu says:

    Dr. John, that’s not the Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil”. That’s Blood, Sweat and Tears: “And When I Die”.

    Way back when I was 13, the Stones album Beggar’s Banquet, which contained “Sympathy for the Devil”, was my brother’s Bar Mitzvah gift to me. We’re a family of 3 out of 4 atheists, but the traditional ritual was important to my mother. And my brother had a sense of humor. 🙂

  13. Alexis says:

    Dr. John, that’s not the Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil”. That’s Blood, Sweat and Tears: “And When I Die”.

    And dozens of blues musicians throughout the twentieth century.

  14. Abhijeet says:

    Rebecca, “why would anyone want to believe in hell?” – because imagining people you hate being condemned to hell is a great pleasure.

  15. DC Toronto says:

    thanks Laripu. I’ve heard Sympathy for the Devil hundreds of times but couldn’t recall that line. I was starting to think I was losing my memory …

  16. Dr John the Wipper says:

    My memory must be failing badly.
    I definitely have to stand corrected.

  17. pink squirrel says:

    re ‘And don’t forget that although thousands of little girls have had their genitals mutilated.’

    That is horrible grammatically – ‘although’ should introduce a sub clause/rider but your sentence fails to do so

    only one comment even mentions ‘Reiki’ strongly suggesting Reiki is totally irrelevant

  18. Laripu says:

    pink squirrel, no-one should care if M27Holts made a grammatical error. The content of his post was worthwhile, and your objection trivial.

    We may as well complain that you’re mixing a metaphor by using a unicorn as an avatar, while naming yourself a squirrel. That would be equally trivial.

    To follow that mixed metaphor down the alley, go polish your horn while you eat some nuts.

  19. FreeFox says:

    How comforting to see good old racism rearing its head behind the facade of religious satire. And behind the racism hiding, of course, sexual inadequacy and misogyny. They’re after our women! Lynch them!

  20. M27Holts says:

    Aye. Sorry for my grammar I didn’t particularly like English at school preferred maths and physics. My use of a particular culture was not racist. As per usual shouting islamaphobia loudly when facts are uncomfortable, is what got those girls in English towns abused for years. Cultural differences are used to subvert the legal process everyday in Britain. It must stop. An abuser is an abuser regardless of sex, age , culture and sexual orientation.

  21. laxeyman says:

    Abhijeet, I believe Sartre said that hell is other people; whereas I suspect you’re right, for the religious, hell is for other people. Hitchens used to quote a little ditty from a christian religious group which went something like:

    We are the pure and chosen few
    and all the rest are damned.
    There’s room enough in hell for you
    we don’t want heaven crammed.

  22. M27Holts says:

    Laxeyman. Aye, The four Horsemen used to put the religious numpties to the sword. Sadly the liberal religious apologists seem to have drowned such as them with ridiculous ad-hominem vitriol for daring to be so bloody logical!

  23. Troubleshooter says:

    Considering that “new age nonsense,” I wonder if J&M have addressed the old age nonsense of transubstantiation. Has anyone considered that, if the body and blood of JC himself were indeed in play, that the poor old boy would have long since been eaten up, down to toenails and teeth!

  24. Deimos says:

    Troubleshooter, that explains the gritty communion host last Christmas.
    However I think your argument might not be quite on song, if I remember my very basic theology education the offerings at mass are turned into the body and blood. Hence Jesus is added to at mass and has been growing for almost 2000 years. He is now huge.

    Please don’t tell me how wrong my theology is, its based on nine hours of instruction over two weeks by a very nice nun 50 years ago. I Know it’s wrong but I don’t want any more instruction thanks. I was sure I understood it all at the time.

  25. M27Holts says:

    Theology is a non subject in reality. Why not study the eco system of middle earth. Equally as valid!

  26. Laripu says:

    Deimos, I think you may have misunderstood your religious, instruction. While the wine and wafer are momentarily turned into body and blood, they are soon converted to human waste by the digestive system of the person consuming Jesus. Therefore, there is only a temporary increase in Jesus’ mass; for if not, then almost all of Jesus is just shit.

    Ahhhh, what do I know? I find communion a bit hard to swallow.

  27. Dr John the Wipper says:

    I find communion a bit hard to swallow.

    Ah well, it is supposed to be just a bit of good old cannibalism….

  28. Someone says:

    Anthropophagy, pedophilia and genocide. Obviously the saner choices to base a religion upon than pseudo-scientific placebos that only worked in The Karate Kid.

  29. M27Holts says:

    You telling me Mr Miagi didn’t catch that fly with chopsticks! You just can’t trust Hollywood.

  30. HelenaHandbasket says:

    Rebecca, that is because you are insufficiently godly! If you were more godly you would realise that revelling in the torments of the damned was one of (after)life’s great pleasures.
    “Wherefore in order that the happiness of the saints may be more delightful to them and that they may render more copious thanks to God for it, they are allowed to see perfectly the sufferings of the damned. ”
    (Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica).
    Remember the key principles of religious morality:
    1) There’s no point being good if no-one is watching
    2) There’s no point being good if you dont get to laugh at the losers
    (I Forget which gospel Jesus said these bits in, but I’m sure they are in there somewhere)

  31. DC Toronto says:

    Freefox – you’ve lost me with your reference. The religious satire is in the J&M strip. Are you suggesting Reiki practitioners are a race?
    Or are you referring to M27Holts comment as he/she seems to think? IF so, where is the religious satire? And do you now contend that Muslims are a race?
    your comment does not seem to make sense but it brings up a potentially serious issue … please elaborate

  32. Son of Glenner says:

    DC Toronto: I took the comment by Freefox to refer to M27Holts’s remarks about Pakistani rapists etc, which in turn referred back to Tom S. Fox’s suggestion of Tommy Robinson as a subject for a future J & M strip.

    BTW: Any connection between Freefox & Tom S. Fox?

  33. DC Toronto says:

    SoG – but he mentions hiding behind the façade of religious satire. I don’t see any satire in the comments you’ve referenced. Do you?

  34. M27Holts says:

    I was just referring to predominantly Pakistani men who were convicted of child rape in towns where they have large Muslim populations. That’s a fact and not a racially motivated fiction.
