A bit of historical perspective may be in order here. Anti-clerical one-issue parties invariably tend to be extreme opportunists, with a right-wing political tilt, and Yesh Atid is no exception. These parties - and their leaders - gain some degree of power by exploiting the (justified) popular resentment of religious oppression, but then display their complete vacuity on any other issues, their extreme opportunism, and their right-wing tilt. Lpaid and Yesh Atid are a textbook illustration of this.
