Someone I know has been interviewing sitters. One of the questions she is asking them is if they believe in God and what exactly their religious beliefs are. I would think that would be crossing the line when hiring a sitter. I mean, it's illegal when interviewing for a job in the "real world", so do you think it's ok in this circumstance?
Can a teenage-Christian babysitter watch and care for a toddler better than a non-Christian babysitter?

I'm with Freela. And let's not forget (Anon 2:05) that while the parents are interviewing the sitter, the sitter is ALSO interviewing them. As a free agent she can pursue the sitting jobs she prefers and avoid the high maintenance parents. I learned that the hard way when I was about 15 and this mother was just outright rude to me and then demanded that I be "on call" at all times just in case she needed me. Umm, no. I have a life. I chose the jobs I wanted and ultimately she didn't make the cut.
