The new version will strengthen the existing law in several ways:
• It directs the president to sanction individuals who carry out or order religious restrictions.
• It instructs the U.S. ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom to report directly to the U.S. secretary of state.
• It requires all foreign service officers to be trained in the “strategic value of international religious freedom.”
Corbin said the new language in the IRFA could influence how U.S. courts regard atheists at home. All Americans are protected by the First Amendment, she said, but “there has always been controversy about the degree to which they (atheists) should be protected. This law makes clear they are to be protected to the same extent” as religious believers.

Finally right of atheist might soon begin to also protected.Like freedom of religious belief . Namely the freedom to also have the right to decide to not-believe in God
And such changes, will also in effect, end up being of benefit to a number of theist folks lives as well too.Because these changes are a step forward toward honesty of freedom of religion,for all sorts of folk
Thus a new age of honesty is dawning.Soon enough. No longer will children be born unto aspects of religious tyranny which traditionally have chosen to use forceful coercion to intimidate harass pressure children choice of belief .Intimidation harassment and pressure too-often also being laced with oppressive-threats . Children forced to live lives and confirm-belief under threat of being excommunicated and even worse totally disowned as if they were already dead
This is the foundation of deceit that we were all forced to need to try living under . The most utterly disgusting form of deceitfulness,that were constantly dressed-up and fed unto the brainwashed brain-dead mind of many church goer
How could ? theist have even allowed themselves to constantly live with this most disgusting form of lie for so many generations
What ? is there that might help to explain this shameful phenomena
Well .A study from Berkeley university California made this suggestion
Highly religious people are less motivated by compassion than are non-believers
Theist tend to lack compassion . (in general)
And i can honestly say this suggestion definitely compare with the majority of my own experience of theist too.And also even compare with certain situations that i experience constantly occurring within the peeb net site as well. Peeb net was more or less just another formation of another cult of faith, a place where anyone whom didn’t agree to just bow-down to the big-wig, then you might get forced-out and excommunicated (even crazier that ex cult members that had ventured there, seemed still unaware of this situation)
Theist seem to have become so well accustomed to faithfully believing that this kind of “tyranny is in fact freedom” . That few of them will then ever begin to be able to see through it
In three experiments, social scientists found that compassion consistently drove less religious people to be more generous.

Perhaps these study ? , might also helped to explain why it is that even the hierarchy of the Church of England had decided to warn their own bishop not to apologize too fully to sex abuse victims from within their own group
For they are a type of theist too. Thus they will lack compassion (because ? they are too-often far too caught up within scripture and religious-pomposity)
To make this fact seem even more obvious .It was also, quote :
American Humanist Association lobbied both Democrats and Republicans for inclusive language in HR 1150 that would recognize the rights of humanists, atheists and other nonreligious individuals, in addition to defending theistic religious minorities.
end quote (my bold)
It was mainly humanist groups whom have lobbied hard for this change
Theist in general just don’t seem to have enough compassion to care to do so
Their lives are too-often been spent chained up unto religion and thus continually crawled right up the ass of Jesus.Huge hordes of toe-suckers their minds thus flooded and constantly overwhelmed and fully occupied by a constant form of idolization (gaze constantly fixed on ideas how to go about saving their own butt forever.Little wonder they can turn a blind eye to harm happening around about them). (Quite likely to the great shame of Jesus himself too. If Jesus were in fact still able to remain conscious of this.As a humanist i am inclined to hope that he isn’t able to remain conscious of the shame of this inhumanity that has been more or less upheld by theists)
As a humanist atheist. Im more than happy to spend the rest of my life being someone who is actively shunned and disliked by a number of these theist, if in fact it may also help change the future for other folk whom will be born after im long dead and gone
My biggest regret being this
If only there were more people, previously, whom cared and dared to also tread this path, long before i were to be born
At some stage. Someone need to be prepared to forgo their own happiness, in hope that doing so, it might also then help to secure far more happiness for so many more other folk
I do not expect, that any changes likely to be happening from now on, will ever serve to help to mend/fix sadness experienced within my own life. Its just far too late for that
