I don't think the author is saying that the "divine" is "a cantankerous bearded patriarchal figure". He or she states that the concept is antiquated. I interpreted the "cantankerous bearded patriarchal figure" generally to be the image of the vengeful God from the old testament. I think the author wants us to reevaluate that figure as perhaps not-so-divine. The emphasis of the poem seems to be that we should focus on love and offer kindness and beauty rather than promoting revenge and war.

I thought it seemed pretty straightforward. Do you interpret it differently?
