Bible thumper (also called Bible basher or Bible beater) is a description used with respect to particularly vocal Christians who constantly quote the Bible when discussing non-Biblical topics (often about science, but also about homophobia, porn, etc.). The term comes from old-timey circuit preachers who would emphatically thump a bible held aloft while making their points.
In the bible thumper’s opinion all moral issues are determined by what the bible says, chapter and verse, as the bible thumper quotes.
- Those who refuse to follow the precepts of the bible thumper are Hell-bent sinners.
- Those who disagree with how the bible thumper interprets the aforementioned book are heretical Hell-bent sinners.
