How to keep readers on the right side

Question: If I create a protagonist that is so far into the gray side of morality that he or she is practically a hair length from crossing into full blown black morality, are there any tips to make sure that readers stay on their side?

Answer: Yes.

1. Make the antagonist even more immoral.

2. Give the protagonist a moral reason for acting the way he does (e.g. Robin Hood).

3. Put the protagonist into a situation where he/she has no other choice but to act the way he does.
