51. Not at all.

People certainly don't have to be atheists to avoid pushing religion-based laws. And some atheists COULD push such laws, out of pandering, or because they want social conservativism for other reasons and are prepared to form an alliance with religious right-wingers. I can think of British examples.

I am not in fact sure how well such an amendment would work in practice, but I don't agree with your argument here.
