As for 'atheist', writers have always avoided ascribing religion to him like the plague lest it diminish his universality; if it's ever brought up, it's usually stated that he's big on Rao, the Kryptonians' god.
In fact, if one had to assign a religion to Superman, wouldn't he be jewish?
No; if he's a member of an earthbound religion, it'd come from the Kents, who pretty much scream small-town American Protestant.
That would be yet another change to the core character though. The Kents didn't come along until afterward. Prior to that he would definitely have been jewish like Peter Parker and the Fantastic Four.
