Description 

The word “cult” summons a number of ideas - from brainwashing to suicide. How much do we really understand about cults? Is there a difference between a cult and a new minority religion? Does labeling a group with word “cult” allow American culture to circumvent freedom of religion? This course will offer the opportunity to examine important issues at the intersection of religion, culture and politics in America.
