If the lesson - in a AP WORLD Geography course - was about how other people view things, this is not as outrageous as it sounds. I would think it SHOULD, however, be followed by what WE think of things. This sounds like it's getting very close to the "there is no one culture better than another" tripe. If a culture - Islam, for example - believes it is OK to slaughter people because they don't believe what you believe, then I would argue that that particular culture was NOT as good as a culture that allows you freedom to believe - or not believe - as you wish.
