In the old Wizards forum post Pelor, the Burning Hate, several sources are mentioned for the conjecture put forth, that Pelor is actually evil. Some of these have specific page references, some do not. I have looked for the referenced passages, and I have been able to find them all save one. It is very possible that I am just overlooking it.

What is the page number for the following reference (If it exists)?

Book of Exalted Deeds: Pelor refused to help destroy a vampire; the paladin was out doing Pelor’s work.

Swarm, Divine Wrath: Book of Exalted Deeds page 188.

When Thassel Tallstak, a halfling paladin of the church of Pelor, returned home to find his family sucked dry by his vampiric nemisis, he prayed to his god to send a swarm of sunflies to reduce the vampire to ashes—a wish so unbrideled in its hate that Pelor had no choice but to refuse.

    \$\begingroup\$ Doesn't this actually support against Pelor of the Burning Hate; refusing a hate filled wish? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Ruut If you're an evil god who loves hate but is pretending to be a good god of justice, nothing is more hilarious than further fueling a paladin's rage (and potential to fall) by refusing his request to destroy an evil creature "because the paladin is too hateful". \$\endgroup\$
