In a way, yes. It was mentioned up-thread that the Faceless Men see all gods associated with death as being different versions of the same thing. I don't think this is exactly it. My understanding is that the Faceless Men see all gods as being different versions of the same thing and they recognize and respect them as such. But the Faceless Men see one thing as being supreme above all else, even the gods, and that is death. After all, everything eventually "dies", even gods. The Faceless Men are dedicated to the worship of death.
The FM are Hindus? Who knew?

I have no problem with them slimming down on religion for the show, three is enough.
So you'd like Arya to be trained by the Red Priests? That would be quite a deviation. And an unnecessary one. People manage to keep track of 6 main religions in real life + atheism; is it so hard to keep track of 4 fictional ones?

This reference to the red god troubles me. It sounds as though Jaqen and the faceless men serve the Red God. As well as the Red God being the god of death. It would upset me if they make Jaqen a follower of R'llor same as Melisandre. I wonder what Martin's thoughts are on this reference. If he's ok with it, that's fine, maybe it's an insight to the Red God...
