Despite the Republican Party's apparent lock-down on the loyalty of religious voters, especially in its wholly owned subsidiary, the Southern Baptist Convention, the actual campaign giving by actual religious leaders is right now favoring Democrats and especially Barak Obama.

Although "clergy and religious organizations" are a mere drop in the bucket among those pumping millions of $$ into the 2008 races, the Center for Responsive Politics discovers that 56 percent of religious donations are going to Democrats in this election cycle, with Obama raking in nearly three times as much as the top Republican recipient, Mitt Romney.

What's curious is that in these charts Gov. Hucklebee is nowhere to be seen.
