Stinging people and whipping them into a fury, all in the service of truth --Socrates

The very notion of worshipping some being--however more intelligent, powerful, knowledgeable, capable--is detestable. Respect and admiration is very much within the compass but worship is beyond the pale. Worship connotes subservience, servility and mindless devotion. "Worship" used hyperbolically is par for the course but to mean it literally is revolting. It jars my sensibilities.
