This month on Discourse!, David Robertson, Suzanne Newcombe and Daniel Gorman, Jr. discuss some recent figures on religious change, in the UK and the US. We discuss how and why the term ‘cult’ is making a comeback, particularly in the US, and often in regard to Trump. This leads into a broader discussion about how religion is represented in the news media, and Suzanne has some suggestions for how to move this forward.
