That requires a meta-ethical analysis of morality itself. Is what makes something moral in the intention, in the action, or in the consequence? Is morality an objective natural law or is morality dependent upon a broader subjective standard. If morality is simply acting in accordance with the will of God, then the discussion gets even more complicated and difficult to resolve.
The reason why "What makes an action immoral" is so difficult to answer is that we still all disagree with the meta-ethical analysis of Morality in the first place.
