Friedrich Nietzsche said I cannot believe in a God who wants to be praised all the time because he rejected all forms of glorification. A generation earlier, the German philosopher Ludwig Feuerbach was the first to publicly notice that God did not mould man in his image, but man moulded God in his. Naturally in a patriarchic and monarchic society God was a kind of super king. We have lost our belief in kings. Obviously the crisis of religion has a lot to do with the rise of democracy.
