The Kite Runner; Stealing is the only Sin????

I came across an interesting movie/novel, following words made me think about the whole concept of morality.

Conversation between child and father conveys a universal message;

"Now, no matter what the mullah teaches, there is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft. Do you understand that?

"When you kill a man, you steal a life," Baba said. "You steal his wife’s right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone’s right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness. Do you see?"

Think about it.
