I don't see the religion as a problem, probably because I teach World
HIstory and one of the things we study are different religions. I feel
that as long as you make it clear that you are learning about people's
cultures (which includes religion), and not trying to convert anyone, then
it shouldn't be a problem.

Hope this helps.
