Wrong, in the context of a set of beliefs. Sin, if one believes in such things. When asking if an action is immoral, usually it is first necessary to determine what morality is. Oft-times, people have no clear concept of right and wrong, acting instead on ad hoc beliefs when their status quo is challenged.
