*Shrug* As if I care what Golarion has as fluff. I play RPG line, not campaign line.
Pish posh, silly Milo, didn't you here? You aren't even allowed to be on this forum unless you conform to every word of Golarion fluff in every book ever. How dare you suggest you could discuss the Pathfinder RPG on the Pathfinder RPG forum? It's not like there's a separate forum for Golarion players, right?
Questions dealing with alignment, undead, Gods, etc. all require some setting context to answer, because they are very much setting relevant questions. It doesn't have to be Golarion of course, although on the Paizo forums that is probably going to provide the most common ground and is maybe most relevant to the ruleset.
If we are talking about Midgard, Forgotten Realms, or Eberron, than the answers to those questions are going to be different than the answers for Golarion. Obviously You can have good liches in at least the latter two settings, although mechanically I believe most are considered different creatures and not "true" liches
