Frequently the minister gave a sermon demonizing infidelity and chastising the congregation; yet it was later found out that he himself was having affairs. He’s just a Bible thumper.

Biblethumpers are religious zealots that pillory others who progress beyond obsolescent morality. The thumping signifies limitation of literacy to only one book, a 2,000-year-old primer which they interminably struggle to read.

Bible Thumpers tend to reduce all discussions to biblical citations while ignoring contemporary science. They are also usually reactionary or conservative toward social change. For example, they are often virulently opposed to birth control, abortion, gay marriage, women's rights, and evolution.

Refuses to acknowledge that the bible was considerably altered by Emperor Constantine and the Council of Niscea around 500AD.
Bible Thumpers (plural) Term laterally applied to all extreme right wing christian groups who use the bible as a basis upon which to justify extreme acts of hate or violence (Westboro Baptist Church comes under this heading)
