He told the story of a Catholic who asked a priest if even atheists had been redeemed by Jesus.

I think that God may well not hold it against a person for being an atheist if he/she was never exposed to religion or was somehow coerced into atheism.Otherwise,to absolutely refute God's existence after having been exposed to (reasonable) religious teachings I fear may be unforgivable to Him.Those who are genuinely agnostic....I can see God giving them a "pass" assuming they've led a basically decent life.

Just my personal thoughts...

Just what do you consider "reasonable" religious teachings?
