Red priests use sacrifice for their spells, they raise the dead (necromancy) and she burns the weirwood and calls Old Gods demons while we have no reason to believe that they are evil.
Maybe red priests aren't evil, but they are being manipulated to think the things they do are for the greater good (burning people and stuff).
Until I see who is The Great Other there is no reason to think that R'hollor is good imo.

And one interesting thing I saw on other forum:
Valar morghulis. Valar dohaeris.
All men must die. All men must serve.
Think about that order, first die, then serve...

Eager to see how it all actually plays out.
cool post. where does milisendre talk about bran?
