To be glorified in his saints

This post was taken from a thread about Mary.

Phil 4:8-9

8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. "

2 Thess 1:9-12
10 when he comes on that day to be glorified in his saints, and to be marveled at in all who have believed, because our testimony to you was believed. 11 To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his call, and may fulfil every good resolve and work of faith by his power, 12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I am confused about why Protestants think that someone, like Mary, being “praiseworthy” and God being “glorified in His saints” somehow “takes away from God”:shrug: .
