I believe that those acts were neither moral nor immoral. Morality doesn't exist outside the mind of the person performing the action.

I agree. (As if you didn't know!) It's all about context and personal perception.

For example, if I walk up and put a bullet in Bryan's brain while he's standing at a bus stop, that would be immoral. I should be punished. However, if we add one other detail such as "he was in the process of raping you", then suddenly it becomes moral to pull that trigger. At least as far as I, and most of society, are concerned.

Oh...and the Bible does cover rape somewhat tangentially. If a mob wants to lynch your house guest it is OK to send your daughters out to be raped by them. (Gen 19:8) So clearly at the very least there are times when it's OK, per the Bible.
