Morality is not relative.

Killing people for their beliefs is wrong; therefore, killing the couple across the street is wrong.

Killing people for acting on immoral beliefs, well, now that is another matter.

Individuals do not get to assume the goverment's authority when it comes to carrying out justice. In other words, there is no place for vigilantism. Only the state can execute people. Citizens can use deadly force when justified but that's another matter.
