Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"accuses scientists who use an anthropomorphical image (of god) metaphorically... of intellectual high treason."

I think you misunderstood his point here. He's saying that priests who knowingly misinterpret the God metaphor used by scientists to convince people of its existence are committing "intellectual treason". Therefore, it would be better if scientist didn't use God as a metaphor in the first place.

Hmmm... that's possible, of course. Though the quote is directed to no one directly and in the context, he is talking about the way some scientists use god.
