We were playing the spin the bottle game and I had to kiss a guy. Everything was cool until we started talking about religion and he told me he was an atheist. I saw him the next day and we hungout most of the day. He is a really sweet, funny, and respectful guy. I'm very confused about the kiss, I think he started to like me too. I don't know if I should continue going out with him. I'm a Catholic girl and God is very important to me.

It'll depend on what kind of atheist he is. Us atheists all have different reasons for it, so hope he isn't the anti-theist type. If he is and you do value your religion, you will absolutely not get along with him in the long term (like me and my parents :/). Just be friends.
From experience, Catholics aren't creationists, so that's not an issue. But in case you are, atheists have a very negative attitude towards creationism and pseudoscience. Just a warning.
The only other problem I can think of is how you intend to raise your children (yes, we're looking this far ahead now). You may want to raise them catholic but more than likely, he won't want to impose religion on them. Again, it will depend on what kind of atheist he is.
Otherwise, I don't believe there should be any problems as long as you don't let religion run his life. If you're able to separate religion from your relationship and potential family, then you should have a perfectly happy and healthy life and relationship with him.
And for a bit of background, I'm an agnostic atheist (converted from Catholicism).2
