May I make an observation and a suggestion?

There is no contradiction (logically or practically) between labeling oneself a Satanist internally (if it fits of course), and fully embracing that label as a new part of one's permanent internal self image, and simply refraining from letting others know this about you (except when to do so would actually benefit you).

Problem solved, quite elegantly.
