In brief: Not wrong but...

Thoughts are not wrong.
But being obsessed with such thoughts can be demoralizing. Cultivate healthy thoughts as they lead to happier life.

In brief: No

I agree with my colleague that thoughts are not wrong.
In fact, psychodynamic therapy can help you understand the roots of your thoughts. Also, keep in mind that one can ruminate and fantasize so much that acting out the fantasy can happen even when the thoughts began without that intention.
