You mention religion.
I work in human resources for a manufacturing company (we manufacture atm machines). If I receive a resume that mentions religion, I toss it.
It's inappropriate and weird and quite frankly it irks me. I figure if you can't keep your religion out of your resume, you probably can't keep it to yourself at work either and I don't want to deal with that so I won't even keep your resume on file.
******It is not illegal to throw out resumes that mention race, religion, gender, ect.. Those things shouldn't be mentioned on a resume in the first place.
It IS illegal to refuse to hire someone because of those things.
There is a difference.
I can also fire you if you talk about religion and a coworker complains that you are making them uncomfortable. I probably won't, you would likely be asked to not harass employees or proselytize during work hours.
*****If you worked somewhere religious (church ect) or went to a religious school and have it listed in work/education history, I don't care. That is not what I am referring to. That is not writing about your religion, it is writing about your work history/education.
*****Again, no laws are broken. It is not illegal to toss a resume that is inappropriate or unprofessional. Sorry to tell you, but writing about your personal beliefs on a resume is weird and inappropriate. I'm surprised by how many of you think that's ok.
