They're deficient, by definition, in very specific areas if they are correctly diagnosed. They're not morally inferior, but it's very difficult for me to see how one can claim both that 1) someone's moral opinions are deficient, and 2) one isn't making a claim about their moral inferiority.

If we are at the level where we are disagreeing about whether deficient and inferior convey similar meanings, I am not really sure about the point of continuing.
