How do you deal with an employer who is a deist and hates all the organized religions.... berates them all and athiests too?

Probably with a lawsuit against the employer for violating the Civil Rights Act, assuming that the berating

But that's not allowed in the work place. I cannot denigrate any of my Xian, Muslim, Judaic, Hindu or Buddhist coworkers' beliefs. Discussion of religion is not allowed at work, and complaints to HR will result in discipline (or termination if

And still not cause to blow-up the magazine's office or kill the cartoonists and editorial staff!

Indeed. But if someone did commit such violence, we would be reticent to claim "I am ________" in solidarity with that

As a matter of law (hostile environment) or as a matter of politics?

As a matter of politics - you would expect to see much of the same process as with Brendan Eich, who was pushed out of Mozilla for supporting Prop 8 in California.
