Is it appropriate to have a religious requirement?

I was just reviewing a technical design job, and the following was listed as a top requirement:

 

Demonstrating Biblical Principles
Actively integrates biblical principles in day-to-day behavior, exhibiting unremitting integrity and strong moral character.

While I understand that companies want to have people who are motivated and work hard, but is this appropriate for a job listing? I'm not sure what the guidelines in UpWork would be for this. Thoughts?

I don't believe it's inappropriate. It's a requirement as any other, though most freelancers, even the religious ones, would probably be 'moving on' once they read it.

 I'd be running the other way but I think it slithers just about a hair's width inside the "benefit of a doubt" line... It does not say "No X,Y,Z religions"

 I don't think it's inappropriate, especially if they are looking for some work done in a religious context. It is also helpful to people who want to stay miles away from that kind of thinking.
