The Kohen’s level of observance and piety are irrelevant. It is not he who is providing the blessing; he is merely serving as a conduit for G-d’s blessings.

G-d
It is forbidden to erase or deface the name of G-d. It is therefore customary to insert a dash in middle of G-d's name, allowing us to erase or discard the paper it is written on if necessary.
