I usually keep my religion to myself. Everyone I work with can tell I am Christian by the picture of Jesus in my cube. I don't generally tell people I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon).
Actually, if that's the picture I think it is, you "out" yourself to anyone knowledgeble enough to identify the picture.
I've surprised more than a few people by asking them if they are LDS and then they ask me how I knew. It's always that picture. And you probably know which one I mean.
I think 90%+ of the LDS homes have at least 1 copy of it and more than a few hang them in their office. But I've never seen that particular picture displayed by anyone who wasn't LDS.
Of course, you may have one of the (many) other pictures of Christ displayed. As far as I know, none of them are so strongly identified with a particular church.

(We don't need a nanny state; if my kids need a nanny I'll hire one myself.)
I never realized that this picture was so identifiable. Just to be sure, it is of Jesus wearing a red robe or cloak. The red cloak symbolizes that Jesus at the second coming, will come in power and glory. But then you probably know that. Oh and Elric keep that sword away from me.
