Damian Thompson (born 1962) is a British journalist, columnist, and author.

Thompson was educated at Presentation College, Reading, and read history at Mansfield College, Oxford University. He received his Ph.D in the sociology of religion from the London School of Economics for a thesis on the management of apocalyptic belief in a London Pentecostal church. He was religious affairs correspondent of The Daily Telegraph from 1990 to 1994, and subsequently Editor-in Chief of the Catholic Herald. He remains a director of the Herald.

Thompson has been a Saturday columnist for The Daily Telegraph since 2011, and is Blogs Editor of the Telegraph Media Group, with responsibility for editing and commissioning blogs on politics, religion, finance and culture. He also writes a monthly column about classical music for the The Spectator.

He has written two books about apocalyptic belief and one about conspiracy theories or "counterknowledge", which he describes as "misinformation packaged to look like fact". His most recent book is The Fix: How Addiction is Invading our Lives and Taking Over Your World.
