Huck isn't very religious, however, he is very superstitious. He believes in many superstitions that deal with bad luck and good luck and signs and what not. but when it comes to religion, he only seems to care about the "good place" and the "bad place" which as we know is Heaven and Hell. Also when the widow was praying over the meal, Huck didn't seem to know that she was praying. He said that it sounded like mumbling. this proves he believes in superstition more than religion.
