If you still don't believe me about-
Lord Asriel's love for his daughter read here:
pg. 375 - 379
Mrs. Coulter's love for her daughter read here:
pg. 199 - 206
pg. 249 - 251
pg. 271 - 273
Their love for each other read here:
pg. 279 - 283
If you still doubt them I am at a loss on how to convince you. But, given this evidence I feel that they do love their daughter and each other, and that their love and sacrifice for their daughter redeems them for their crimes (no matter how horrid) a-hundred-fold.
That is my evidence from book three as to why they are heroes and should be respected and mourned.
P.S. Roger's death was half prophesized.

Like with most parents, you grow up and realize they're people -- flawed and trying. There was only one person qualified to consider Asriel and Coulter evil... and that's Lyra. Lyra chose neutrality. It was too late to love them and impossible to do so while they were alive... for she had already grown up. But there's no doubt, they were wicked parents for a long time.
