Falrun's 2e Dungeons & Dragons Create Characters The Dawn Seeker says...
Now to explain why I have been handling the situation as I have. You see, though Gabriel is a paladin and also Lawful Good which for many means they can behave stupidly either when it comes to being lawful or good, I am trying to consider the long term.
The facts as I have them. The Bishop may or may not be evil, could be deceiving people and be much like the religious or political leaders of our land in it for the power not because of proper faith. Yet he is also a very powerful figure with much influence and control.
Through such, by acting rashly or rudely it could lead to getting on his bad side and a very dangerous foe. More, by going against him it can make the party marked as fugitives and criminals making it much more difficult to get about safely or without trouble.
By trying to have Gabriel keep a cool head, show respect, and generally not antagonize or threaten someone likely much more powerful then we are was for the better strategy. Now, because of all that has happened, I can't even detect whether or not the Bishop is evil.
Still, I am not accusing Hunter of anything and I am certain he was just staying true to his character. I just wanted to explain myself. Even if, at this point, it doesn't change anything and out characters are still in very real danger.
