Do clerics have to like their god?

Seems like in the real world, there were at least a few gods that were worshiped, but wasn't liked. (Hades comes to mind immediately, but it seemed like the Judaeo-Christian God ruled mostly by fear in the beginning.) I've tried a few times to play a cleric who worshiped their god either out of fear, circumstance, or obligation, but they always get shot down because "Clerics are servants of their gods, so must love them." which never made any sense to me.

If you were running a game or had a player in your party who wanted a relationship like that, would you allow it or call bullshit? How do you feel about the concept? Google has failed in getting me answers in that regard.
