Yes, but we hope they lead to greater understanding.  Thank you for 
posing the question, which at the lowest level may appear to be a simple 
question of "right" and "wrong", while at the level of popular discourse 
it may appear paradoxical as people ask themselves how they can possibly 
decide which is morally correct, and at a higher level it may be seen 
that the framing of the question is what limits our comprehension of 
these issues.

Since I am neither a moral relativist nor absolutist, I'll withhold 
further comment for now.
