Well, if you know the person is good aligned, then it stands to reason that there must be more to it than it seems and thus perhaps you need not kill the person. Perhaps they're being made to go there against their will or something. So you're saying that a good aligned person is incapable of evil ...

If a good aligned thief breaks into your home, do you stop to ask questions? I expect not, so don't break into another's home when you are not invited.

It is impossible to generalize what a paladin would or would not do within the constraints of a FR setting. Such actions would depend vastly on the particular diety they choose.
