"Why did you make that joke about jesus, the one with the cross? Are you an athiest?"-YW
"Yes."-You

Problem solved. Her expectations are fulfilled. No more need for explanations.

Maybe her answer to this would have been:
"Why don't you believe in God?"-YW
"So, why do you? - Please explain it to me at dinner tonight."-You

HS!

Well, I have never been in such an akward situation, I suppose it's because I use a little more tact in a public place, especially work. I would have told the woman that I believe in God and I was just joking around. I have heard plenty of Christians make jokes about Jesus amongst other things outside of church. Sometimes being a chameleon is a good survival tool. By the way what was the joke?

What if you stated that being who you are is someone who you are.
And anyway, even you explain it over again, she'll never understand or even feel about what you have said.
She maybe is a God-realist or a God-nonrealist.
Well for me, you made the right decision to ignore her and to stop wasting time by not talking to her.

The person was obviously offended, albeit reacted awkwardly ("Are you an atheist?") She was offended in her own workplace. That is the real issue. Not whether the Satanist's obligation to tell her his alliance. Who cares if he was a Satanist or a Christian, the point is he was a jackass at work and he was confronted about it.

As most everyone else has said the best policy is not to discuss religion at all at work. However, if the subject does come up and the little sheep won't leave you alone I have found the most effective way of dealing with it is to play to all the false myths of Satanism to such an obscene extent that they see how stupid they are being.

A good way to end the conversation is thus:

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go sacrifice a virgin and drink the blood of an unbaptized baby

The fact that you ask how others would deal with this troubles me. It would seem as if you were somewhat in doubt of how you should deal with it. A god in doubt of itself is no god at all. Yet the path can be long for some, keep walking and ask only of yourself in occasions like these. These are your tasks to work through. Whatever leaves you with a self satisfying and completed feeling is obviously the correct manner in which to deal with this. Everyone's character and experience is different. Pretend to be someone else and you will be no one at all. Stop looking for ideas and allow yourself to take control.

IF someone asks you if you believe in god, say:

"Well, of course I believe in god. I'm standing right here, aren't I?"

In this situation I think it is good to say you belive in God but in your way.

Only your friends, your familie, your community may know your real religion. If you divulge your religion to everyone this is create more divergence.

Of course ! use the Lesser magic

Before I tell my story, I always wear my baphomet medallion except for when I am asleep, when I'm exercising, or when I'm going swimming. At my job in a retail store I still wear the baphomet medallion around my neck. One day, a guy came up to me at my job, and the following happened.

MAN: Can I ask you a personal question?
Myself: Sure, go ahead.
MAN: Do you know what that symbol around your neck means?
Myself: It represents who I am. Myself, my ego, and my carnal desires.
MAN: So you're a devil worshipper.
Myself: Haha, I'm afraid you're wrong.
MAN: Then why are you wearing the sign of the devil around your neck?
Myself: Because I want to, and I can do what I feel like.
MAN: God's gonna get you one day.
Myself: I'm sure he will. (I then snicker and laugh in his face, and walk away.)

I wasn't scared, shocked, or surprised that this happened to me. Then again, I don't care what people think. If they are offended, that's their problem.

Smile and nod.

It makes some people feel better to talk about that crap in public. In such a fashion they can assure they have a bracing of like-minded "moral" individuals upon which they can support thier problem ridden life.

Smile and nod.

After I hear a co-worker go off on one of these tangents I really get an insight into who they are, and how useful they can be. I've only ever had this problem once or twice, it was never much of a hassle.... Smile and nod.

H.S.

Try saying that when you get fired for offending one too many people on the job. You offend people, they won't like you. If people don't like you, you make yourself vulnerable for attack.
