Barron is referring to atheists who follow their conscience in a society where it becomes less likely one will bump into a "real" Christian, or even any sort of Christian. If you're brought up with only atheism, but you try your best to follow "the truth", you are inevitably going to follow something our Lord, God the Son, spoke into existence as the Word. The way he presents it is very unfortunate, but there is some merit in thinking on the idea. Obviously, though, an atheist with good will is almost a contradiction in terms. :(
Romans 1:20 Wrote:For the invisible things of him, from the creation of the world, are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made; his eternal power also, and divinity: so that they are inexcusable.

Although, the idea that of participation in Truth is just a part of a participatory metaphysic, so I don't think that aspect of the video is problematic.
