So I am walking along--doing my thing. Ignoring everyone and their business. I am meeting a few people in the break room.
I sit down to have a small chit chat with some people. There are several people I know in the room, but my conversation is between 3 particular people. The conversation turns toward God.
A nosey busy body that I do know- but was not part of my conversation, we will call her Bertha, decides our personal conversation is her business and says " your invisible sky guy isn't real" ... we smile and move on with our conversation and Bertha feels the need to tell us how we shouldn't not be talking about "mythology" in public because she has the right not to hear it.
So other than throwing a cup of hot coffee on her what is the best response?
Does religion have to be in our churches or living rooms? When did my rights as a Christian take back burner to her right to leave the room?

Idk... I've never discussed religion or politics at work. Too much room for arguing. Maybe she didn't have to be that rude about it, but maybe she was annoyed. I guess it depends on how small the break area was. Our old break room was pretty tiny and I guess I'd get annoyed if some people by me were talking about something like that, but then again I would have just left and gone for a walk or something instead...
