Occasionally, I actually agree with you
and this is one of those times.  At its heart, Christianity is, through its Hebrew roots, fundamentally anti-ethical.  Morality, the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, separates Man from God in the Garden of Eden story.  That Love is what brings us back to God is the message of the New Testament.

both good and evil are defined by people (the tree of the knowlege of)
and such definition can change.

Good and bad... it's all in one's perception
Everyone's perception is different, and I guess for some it's more different than others.

Someone may perceive a bunch of fresh strawberries to be good.  Yet for someone who has a known allergy can perceive the same to be very bad.

It's the same with people.  Especially when they have their "set views".  It's easy for someone to view something or someone as bad or evil.  It is their perception that is making it that way, while someone else's perception is something completely different.

Re: So many choices, and too much time on our hands.
correction:  to whatever "degree" our choices dictate.. not to whatever "agree".  Jeez, I hate typos!

So many choices, and too much time on our hands.
When we begin to understand that there is no us/them, black/white, good/evil, eventually we get to a point when we can reach our full potential.  Which is saying that we each hold within us the potential to be "good" or the potential to be "bad", to whatever agree our choices dictate.

Personally, I love shades of grey, because they represent an infinity of possibility.
