    If God is a fairy tale, then the question "Is God Evil?" is absurd and there is no point in answering.

    Is Nurse Rached from One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest evil or not? It is still an interesting debate, regardless of it's nature, be it fact or fiction.

    It's arguable... but one would hardly interrupt such a debate by declaring that Nurse Ratched was a fable.

    One assumption intrinsic to the question is that there is in fact a God. What I have discussed here is what I hope is a fair representation of the Judeo-Christian perspective on the matter.

    It's a reasonable critique... but it applies equally to the question in the OP.

    We learn lessons about the real world from fairy tales, without believing them to be true. We learn what behavior conforms with group values and what goes against it.

    When culture has evolved enough, we can also go back and see whether those lessons are applicable, or whether that group has traits we'd rather not sustain within ourselves. We can also determine whether the totem of that group has the same traits.
