I definitely need some help on this one. I have this English assignment where I need to find the definition of "goddom". I've looked in numerous dictionarys but no luck. I think it has something to do with religion. So, if anyone could give me a broad definition or a reference (even better).. I'd appreciate it.

I tried dictionary.com (nothing) and did a google search and I'd say you are are on the track with it being religiously affiliated. I couldn't find a good definition of it but it seems like it might be an alternative word for the concept of Heaven (aka, where a "kingdom" is ruled be kings, a goddom is ruled by gods). Your best bet would be to go to google and do a search on your own and peruse those search results for some sort of answer. Be forewarned, a lot of those websites looked to be cult/satanic sights.

Do you mean "god-dom"? Your English teacher may be refering to a "pantheon of gods" as in Greek and Roman mythology who resides on Mt. Olympus (their king"dom" or domain).
Or, the expression "god-dom" could be used as a kind of slang for popular cultural figures who are god-like amongst their peers. As Zeus was the supreme ruler of all the other Greek gods; for my generation, Eric Clapton was "god" of all guitar players. In one of the following references, the director Quentin Tarintino is lauded as being a "god" amongst film directors...
Look at the references and see if either fits in with what you were discussing in class. Context is everything!
(see reference to Bruce Mau: "his own god-dom")
