LG Paladins being vastly more common than the other two kinds makes sense even without any sort of metaphysical reason, since one thing Lawful Good has on the other kinds of Good is "getting people organized and pointed in a specific direction".
Like with the liberator focus on individual self-determination, it makes recruiting incredibly difficult. Mendevian Crusaders can just walk up to people and say "Hey, you should devote yourself to Iomedae and go kill some demons up in the Worldwound."
Yup. Plus there's the whole 'Iomedae's church is the most likely to have Paladins because she was one' factor.
And the fact that Gorum doesn't have Good followers while both LN Gods do (Abadar even has Paladins in significant numbers), while few Neutral deities are gonna have such things (Nethys and Gozreh just make little sense...I can see some following Pharasma), is also probably a contributing factor.
Gorum not having Good followers is a PF2 thing.
You could even have Good Clerics of Gorum in PF1. Not sure if there was any in canon though
Raw mechanics allowed good clerics of gorum, the fluff and doctrine of the church doesnt make it seem particularly lore accurate though.
Also boo non LG paladins, adios 2e
