If you want to honor some, that's your decision.

Only dictators demand to be honored.

I expect there are some honourable people out there, but it's a subjective thing and you should honour whoever you feel is worthy of your honouring them (in other words, people you think are honourable).

Indeed there are - approximately 601 of them, primarily in Cameroon, but with over 200 in the US (none in Canada, I note). The highest density of honourable people in the world. Of course this requires using a correct spelling... ;)

Or read the OP, which distinguishes between the Office and the person defiling it.
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.
