           Is morality relative to culture?

The moral standards are not completely relative.

There are still elements that are not relative, for example, theft, rape, murder, they are regarded as crimes or immoral anywhere. Standards are certainly not completely the same. To be precise, there is common ground but also dispute too. In the above cases, the common ground is larger than dispute.

Gypsies do not steal each other.
Rape is accepted on special occasions in special tribes, but not as a usual one.
As murder, some regimes take political killing as granted, but not a general practice. 
That is to say, they must find some excuses to do it, like a law order. Not as natural as eating.
