I have hunted for this quote from Sartre

« L’existentialisme pense qu’il est très gênant que Dieu n’existe pas, car avec lui disparaît toute possibilité de trouver des valeurs dans un ciel intelligible ; il ne peut plus y avoir de valeur de bien a priori puisqu’il n’y a pas de conscience infinie et parfaite pour le penser. »

Existentialism thinks that it's very annoying that God does not exist because with him dissapears all possibility of finding your values in an intelligible heaven ; there can no longer be any a priori "good" since there is no infinite and perfect conscience to think it so.

Find it in a bigger context here.
