Most functional languages (e.g. Lisp, Haskell, ...) have a challenging  
time in industry since they require some savvy with multiple levels of  
higher abstractions and some savvy with mathematical ideas and some  
savvy with functional algorithms and data structures.

Also, your manager has probably come up through the technical ranks on  
his/her OOA/OOD/OOP skills and sees you as a young (or not) upstart  
trying to show off.
