neither...

he doesn't worship satan or any of that, in fact if he could give up The Darkness he probably would...

as for Fighting demons, he has done several times in the past, but he prefers fighting Angels as those are the ones that are always coming for him

He fights Angels? Why do Angels come after him? Is the Darkness a Demon or something?

it's complecated...

the Angel's are foot soldiers of the Angelus, it's an age old conflict, basically order (angelus) Vs Chaos (darkness) with the Witchblade as the neutral party...

it's been going on for millenia...

Demons have nothing to do with it...

he's fought them a few times, but it's not a major thing for his story

Religion wouldn't do anything to The Darkness... in fact, Jackie quite enjoys going to church and has even fought in one before...

it's worth reading...

the first series was sort of tongue in cheek humor with dark tastes...

the second series was darker but still funny in parts...

the third series is just pure darkness with no humor whatsoever...

You should totally check it out.  The Darkness is always a good read, which is funny when you consider that Jackie shouldn't be that relatable as a character and yet it works and works well.

As for biblical references I have but the one, and that was in the first issue of the Third Vol.  Jackie talks about being in Sunday school and hearing about how God made woman.  He then relates that compared to the Almighty his powers are nothing and yet he gets a feeling of how he must have felt creating woman as Jackie in this case creating Elle finds it is something that is too much for words.
