In fact, IIRC one episode that dealt with a conflict was not against two differing religions but religion vs science. Of course religion vs science is a big issue but religion vs religion (christanity vs islam) is a much bigger one. Why not a story about a priest working to convert Bajorans? What exactly should the feds do about a priest who is not bound by a prime directive?
I see your point, but I'll contend, as well, that Star Wars was never about Earth religion, either.

The SF franchise that did deal with Earth religion was and is "V," and, incidentally, for which there is a remake.
