Congress sent President Obama the bipartisan International Religious Freedom Act that protects religious freedom including the rights of non-believers. He signed it into law. Should non-believers be protected the same as believers?

I would be very curious about the details of the bill.
Knock yourself out:
Btw, It was a unanimous vote in both the House and Senate.
I read through most of it and my comfort with it is very questionable.
How do you feel about it?
I haven't had a chance to read the bill, just the blurb about it in the local newspaper, but I've been saying for a long time that the Constitution's religious protections apply to atheists and believers equally.
In other words, religious freedom includes freedom from religion. If the law conforms with that, I am for it.
Constitutionally everyone, including atheists, have the freedom of religion.
This bill is international, however, It details a report that the department of state is to make about foreign countries to "promote" international religious freedom in the interest of US national security.
See where this could be going?
