People are born with red hair, but hair color is not a protected class. People are born with unattractive features, but ugly isn't a protected class. I'm not sure I understand why you think being born in a particular way is the most important aspect for suspect class status. Religious freedom is a bedrock ideal upon which our country was founded.

Furthermore, I would argue that much like homosexuality, people who are true believers don't feel like they have a choice about their religion even if it isn't actually determined at birth.
