Lol, Debra - it sounds as though the spirit at your work is on your side and backing you up.
"Non-believer's" attitudes can be a real problem. I remember a very good friend of mine (a physicist) once trying to imply that I couldn't be a good scientist because I believed in auras.
The trick to managing this, I've found, is to ask them to back up their opinion. Usually they can't - it is an opinion founded on the fact that some people who believe in aliens or new-agey stuff are nutters, and they are the ones that the general public hears about most.
In my experience, I simply explained that my spiritual beliefs were actually highly logical and all stemmed from an initial assumption that there is an as-yet-undetected "energy" that everything manifests from in a kind of feedback loop, and that this basic assumption was a lot more believable than the notion of an omnipotent God that created everything and cares about each individual, so if he was going to criticise me he also needed to criticise our Christian friends. That shut him up. He even expressed a slight interest in what I had to say after that.
So, if you are being ridiculed for your beliefs, challenge the ridicule, present a rational argument (but without resorting to over-interpretation of facts and science) and you may even enlighten a few people...
