Personally I think Atheists are Children of God, just like everyone else... I believe Atheists, just like everyone else, are on a journey. I pray they find God at the end. And most of all, I don't take it personally when Atheists "hate" me (believer)... I know what it is and what it isn't... It's just a part of the journey... If you (atheists) don’t accept that God created you and you are children of God, then who created you?
