Morality is mostly on individual beleif .......I look at it as 3 sides of a coin
1.The most important thing is God's blessing and if you believe in God and you believe in yourself, you have nothing to worry about.
2.But again if your beliefs are different from what everyone else believes, you're basically saying, "I'm right, and everyone else is wrong." That's a very unpleasant position to be in. It's at once exhilarating and at the same time an invitation to be attacked.
3.Belief is to be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it......For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible

It may be different little bit but the basic elemelts must be common. If a religion allowes more than one marriage may not be immoral. But if some one creats extra mertial relation is immoral. Stealing somebody's property is also immoral.. But taking some body's property with his consent is not immorale.
