The Great Gatsby

What is Nick's tone when he calls Gatsby a "son of God" and says that Gatsby "must be about his Father's business, the service of a vast, vulgar, and meretricious [to look attractive but have no value] beauty"?

I think, at this point in the novel, Nick is beginning to figure Gatsby out. Although Nick is still enthralled with the idea of Gatsby, he understands that Gatsby, the man, is flawed with delusions of grandeur.
