Everything in life is relative the sooner you realize that the world is just one huge smear of gray the better. Anyone who proclaims that morality is some objective bar one much reach for can be presented many examples which would put a wrench into that claim.    
   
To quote a entertainment fictional tv/book series Jaime Lannister "No matter what you do you find your self forsaking one vow for another, its all too much." Now while this is an over simplification of morality in the real world things lay upon a spectrum of effects an action can have the one hand you have the costs of an action to its "victims"  the other the benefits to the group as a whole. If you were to murder someone who was infected with a horrible disease that would have killed millions was that moral or immoral? If you took all the money from the rich and used it to feed millions and millions of people at the cost of those rich their living standards, is that moral? is that immoral?    
   
TL;DR version, the world is much more complicated than black and white, those who think otherwise live in a fairy tale they have constructed merely because its easier to live day to day with than the more morally ambiguous world we live in.
