It's the escape hatch reasoning that led to overcompensating backlash from Nietzsche and others. A mute, invisible absentee landlord who leaves only suspect text and issues no fresh, mass-market answers to important questions is the best cover for sadistic and childish monsters. "I don't believe this and want it, God does" means "I want this so bad but I need to find a way to escape my moral culpability." Oddly, modern alt-right Fascists wrapped in their Dark Triad and pseudoscience really are more amoral and openly sociopathic. They understand on some level that what they want to do is wrong in the eyes of others, they simply don't care and declare their intentions so openly they leave no room for ambiguity, which is why some have ditched gods. They are being honest about why they ever had them and why they no longer need them.
