However I'd ask you this- Who actually thinks their leaders are gods anywhere in the modern world? The only place I can think of is North Korea. And whatever other places on this earth that that is still true, it can't be too many places. The population has more sense than that, and it didn't take religion for people to achieve this common sense. It also didn't take atheism or even agnosticism for this realization, but this is like the fable of King Canut.
