All the ESFJs I know participate of religious acts... "religiously". They are always thinking of how something affects others (Fe) but also how the ones who don't believe the same way or don't value traditions (Si) are somewhat egotistical. I say this because all the ESFJs I know scold me (INTP, 5 sp/sx) claiming I'm egotistical and that religion should help me put myself in others' shoes. I also know religious 5s, so I don't think it's a black-or-white question, but according to my experience, ESFJs, 2s social tend to like working in group for a global cause. I just like anarchy and Wi-Fi, the rest of the world can burn.

If an SJ is raised in a religion with little conflict. It is theoretical that an SJ would be there for life as Si/Je functions are satisfied and would not need to expand because of no hardships making a life consistent and easy relying on a stable text.
If other environmental conditions occur or unique circumstances due to the nature of the SJ, perhaps but unlikely unless it is quite out of the norm AND there is another group advocating for the people out of the norm the SJ would leave the group in better hopes of being able to function in the new society if provided the stability.
The other and much simpler outcome is if the SJ was outside of the religion and all values were met. SJ would not need to be religious.

Most my family I know (the most religious ones) tend to be SJ's. My father is STJ and way into it, as is my aunt and uncle who is an unhealthy ISFJ.. kinda funny though considering my STJ friend is more atheistic. Meaning while most seem more religious, it's clearly not always the case and more a matter of perceptions in this day and age. SFJ is more likely as the T ends up making them more critical of the potentialities in religion unless they have some experience (my dad supposedly did) and become totally devoted. Always comes down to experience.
Any NF's I know are not necessarily usually religious(it's too structured) but tend to be more spiritual. I do believe there's a difference. But I've also known an NF Christian(but he was very casual) and an NF Pagan. By the same token I know an NF Agnostic(but she's somewhat spiritual still and more open minded than most).
So I'd say NF is usually more spiritual, while SJ is usually more religious. Exceptions are always present of course.
