Status Worship is an exaggerated emphasis on one's status rather than his actual insights, contributions, or effort.

Jesus was known to place no significance in one's status:

"Teacher," they said, "we know you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren't swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are."[1]

In another translation the term "status" is used to describe what meant nothing to Jesus.[2]

Increasingly, public school textbooks teach history based the bias of status worship, misleading students into thinking that status is more important than achievement. Elected officials typically receive more emphasis than, for example, Thomas Edison, who was selected as the most important person of the last thousand years by Life magazine.[3]

Status worship often leads Liberals into the deceit of exaggerating the status of the people they admire, as in the case of 'Professor' Richard Dawkins and 'Assistant Professor' Barack Obama. This is worsened by the fact that many educational institutions are controlled by liberals, who give positions to other liberals over better-qualified conservatives. Thus liberals make claims of authority based on status that they do not even deserve.
