Why We Shouldn't Hate The High Sparrow
"People seem to hate on the High Sparrow, mainly because most of us today don't like religious zealots, as this has been a main issue of controversy in past decades. But if we judge the religious leader of the Westerosi church by our own standards, we should judge the other characters the same way. And which of the noble heroes of the realm is just by 21st century morals? Ned? Jaime? Tyrion? None of them.
"We should understand the Sparrow movement as a result of a corrupt feudal system that is built on violence and exploitation. So in that regard, the High Sparrow is more just than most - if not all - the other characters."
