Everything is relative. Is murder wrong? Yes. Is it wrong to murder a man that intends to kill your family? No. Is stealing wrong? Yes. Is it wrong to steal bread to feed a starving child? No. These of course only my beliefs, but you get my point, even an immoral act can be morally right under certain circumstances.
