I think this topic may have been discussed here before, but here is an interesting article on the topic for those of us who are comic fans.

Yeah I've always heard about this - that he listens to DC Talk and reads the NIV Bible. I think the artist and writer of Nightwing were Christians. Odd to read that about Batman being an atheist. I have a comic where he's holding the Holy Grail and says, "Can you believe the Son of God actually held this in His hand?"

In the new Identity Crisis, a bunch of heroes are actually in a worship service asking God for guidance and help during this time. Only one hero is standing outside, identifying himsefl as an atheist (the black guy with the mask who's also on Justice League Unlimited). And someone asks him, "you're an atheist? I thought you were supposed to be one of the smartest guys in the world?"

One thing they are not considering is the different writers to explain the difference in Nightwing's activities.

In his individual comic, at the beginning when initially being proclaimed a christian, there wasn't any "sleeping with" anyone. However, if you went over to what was happening in Teen Titans/Titans, he was. There were different writers. It was the writer of the Nightwing comic that added the christian traits and interests. So, really, it is inconsistency in character development on the part of DC's editorial staff (which is common in Marvel also).
