Question:

Is there a concept of tinok shenishbah with regard to goyim who are ovdei avodah zarah?

Answer:

If the person is a Jew, it is possible that he is a tinok shenishba, (a Jewish child that was captured and brought up by the gentiles). However a gentile who is an oved avodah zara is not  a Jewish child that was “captured”, but a gentile that is doing what his parents have been doing for generations.
