Besides the fact that such precepts are somewhat of a tautological or
empty nature (your translation is correct: not "Don't kill", but
"Don't murder", which means "Do not kill when it is legally or
ethically wrong to do so"), I assume that "100% wrong" here refers not
to prescriptive, but to prescriptive statements.

Even with the latter, I would have more than a few objections. But it
remains that the mere fact of being against what most of us may
consider as the truth is not ethically irrelevant...
