IMHO, passing a background check is not quite the same thing. That said, I
also don't see what the big deal is. If you aren't LDS, and aren't in good
standing with the LDS religious organization, then your interest in working
for that church is probably limited. What I don't get is why they need to be
so secret about it in the job listing. Why can't they say "Must be a member of
the LDS church in good standing and meet additional stringent personal
religious requirements."

Is the goal to somehow protect the recruiter's organization? Anyone know?
