13. Oh, dear. I don't see the issue here, really.
As you posted, your daughter loudly proclaimed her atheism in this restaurant. When she walked by that table, someone there engaged her in a conversation regarding religious belief, which your daughter handled rationally and politely. Can you explain where your difficulty is with this?

Had the conversation at your table not been loud enough for this other table to hear, the situation would never have arisen. Since it was clearly audible, I can't see any reason to be concerned that someone at another table raised the point with your daughter, who had introduced it publicly. Your daughter behaved perfectly in the situation. I'd be proud of her.

In public places, people often engage others in conversation over things said and heard. No big deal, really.
