France rejected far right Le Pen, and all the accompanying xenophobism and strong religious undertones that the far right represents.
The far right has made a lot of progress in the world in last decade or so, it is good that it did not score another victory today. Perhaps the tide has finally begun to turn and the majorities will begin to see the far right for what it really is.
I will take any victories we can get, even if Macron is no paragon of virtue himself.
Also trumps signed into law executive order over religion in politics, does not really change things too much according to many religious leaders, they still shared their opinions about their political issues all along anyways. But that is still certainly a loss for any minority viewpoint like atheism.
