There is a long and often horrible history of people being persecuted for their religious beliefs. So protecting religious freedom gets a bit of special consideration.

Because religious beliefs encourage values such as kindness, honesty, love and things like that. Other beliefs contribute nothing to anything whatsoever.

Bingo.

People are far more likely to form angry mobs, blow themselves up and cut peoples heads off for their crack pot religions than anything else.

Because religious people tend to form identifiable, cohesive groups they speak with a unified voice which attracts the attention of politicians. Even if the religion in question encourages people to do immoral things weak willed politicians will still pander to them to attract votes and to limit the risk of causing offence.
