Samael, you wrote:
When we are talking about morals, 'right', 'wrong' ,etc. only make sense relative to a particular moral system. In the same way that a speed is always relative to an observer or other frame of reference, an action is only right relative to a particular moral framework: ie some actions are perfectly reasonable under a utilitarian framework, but completely unreasonable under a christian framework. You have to look at the action and see what the framework says about it rather than the action being right or wrong seperate to that framework.

Sorry, is that clearer?

Yep, and I agree.
