To keep this on topic (sorta), why are most heroes not as religious as they could be? ...the only really religious person that's sane that I recall in DCU is Huntress, and I guess Wonder Woman... Anyone else...?

Barry (Flash) Allen was shown to be a churchgoing man.

Connor (Green Arrow) Hawke is a Buddhist, or something similar.

Aztek is a part of a cult, I believe.

Albert Rothstein (Atom Smasher, I think it is now?) is Jewish

I think I recall that Adrian (Vigilante) Chase was a fairly religious man.

Can't think of any others off hand.
