pejorative term describing a particular kind of religious believers who accept any statement issued by some religious authority or interpreted in a religious text, without using critical thinking and even common sense.
God-gobblers can be found among monotheistic fundamentalists of various religions.
They will also refuse scientific facts because they don't reflect their beliefs.
Ignoring scientific ethics, they could also try to formulate pseudoscientific theories to support their beliefs.
Origin: comes from God + gobbler, "one who eats food very quickly, without decorum" (figuratively).
"My kids (teenagers) go to youth-groups at some God-gobbler church near them"
"take a look at a real history book - not something cranked out by some evangelical god-gobbler or neocon think tank"
