This is just me, but if I were advertising a job where the prospective
employee "should love Jesus", I'd post it in all the local churches of
compatible denomination, not on a LUG list. It's pretty safe to assume that
any LUG member who loves Jesus participates heavily in a local church, so why
unnecessarily involve the non-Jesus-loving members of the LUG?
The other thing, and this is just me, your mileage may vary, is that the
United States has been formed as a melting pot. We're all immigrants except
the Native Americans (iow American Indians). Although the first amendment in
no way prohibits job posts like this one, the first amendment sets a certain
tone that I'd personally like to see preserved.
