Speak for yourself you centre of pestilence.  

But let's see what ol Praeterhumanoid AIWASN'T has to say about things. 
All passages from AL containing references to "worship":


I:9. Worship then the Khabs, and behold my light shed over you!

II: 8. Who worshipped Heru-pa-kraath have worshipped me; ill, for I am
the worshipper.

II:22. I am the Snake that giveth Knowledge & Delight and bright glory,
and stir the hearts of men with drunkenness. To worship me take wine and
strange drugs whereof I will tell my prophet, & be drunk thereof! It is
a lie, this folly against self. The exposure of innocence is a lie. Be
strong, o man! lust, enjoy all things of sense and rapture: fear not
that any God shall deny thee for this.

II:78. Lift up thyself! for there is none like unto thee among men or
among Gods! Lift up thyself, o my prophet, thy stature shall surpass the
stars. They shall worship thy name, foursquare, mystic, wonderful, the
number of a man; and the number of thy house 418.

II:79. The end of the hiding of Hadit; and blessing & worship to the
prophet of the lovely Star!

III: 9. Lurk! Withdraw! Upon them! this is the Law of the Battle of
Conquest: thus shall my worship be about my secret house.

III:11. This shall be your only proof. I forbid argument. Conquer! That
is enough. I will make easy to you the abstruction from the ill-ordered
house in the Victorious City. Thou shalt convey it with worship, o
prophet, though thou likest it not. Thou shalt have danger & trouble.
Ra-Hoor-Khu is with thee. Worship me with fire & blood; worship me with
swords & with spears. Let the woman be girt with a sword before me: let
blood flow to my name. Trample down the Heathen; be upon them o warrior,
I will give you of their flesh to eat!

III:22. The other images group around me to support me: let all be
worshipped, for they shall cluster to exalt me. I am the visible object
of worship; the others are secret; for the Beast & his Bride are they:
and for the winners of the Ordeal x . What is this? Thou shalt know.

III:24. The best blood is of the moon, monthly: then the fresh blood of
a child, or dropping from the host of heaven: then of enemies; then of
the priest or of the worshippers: last of some beast, no matter what.

III:34. But your holy place shall be untouched throughout the centuries:
though with fire and sword it be burnt down & shattered, yet an
invisible house there standeth, and shall stand until the fall of the
Great Equinox; when Hrumachis shall arise and the double-wanded one
assume my throne and place. Another prophet shall arise, and bring fresh
fever from the skies; another woman shall awake the lust & worship of
the Snake; another soul of God and beast shall mingle in the globed
priest; another sacrifice shall stain the tomb; another king shall
reign; and blessing no longer be poured to the Hawk-headed mystical

III:45. Then will I lift her to pinnacles of power: then will I breed
from her a child mightier than all the kings of the earth. I will fill
her with joy: with my force shall she see & strike at the worship of Nu:
she shall achieve Hadit.
