GNUS has customize options for setting the amount of font locking. You
can use these configuration options to turn font locking off/on for
different parts of the gnus display (e.g. summary, article buffers or
parts of the display such as headers, quoted text, signatures
etc). maybe this will give you what you want. Try

M-x customize-group <ret> gnus <ret>
