You hit the nail right on the head. That is, no being perfect in goodness would want to be worshiped. I tried to demonstrate this by developing a logical disproof of the Biblical god concept that defined the worshiping of something as at least acknowledging that it exists. (This was safe because the supposed Biblical god demands that his existence be acknowledged by everybody.) The Science and Rationalists' Association of India published it in its online magazine.
It might ring your bell because you are already on to the very significant idea that nothing perfect in goodness would want to be worshiped. Not even the argument that the supposed Biblical god wants to be worshiped so it can be a better father figure holds water. The disproof is short. It is at the address below if you would like to see it.
