it has to do with placing reverence in something or someone that doesn't deserve it
Except in this 'meritocracy', Linus is in the top tier, so /of course/ he and his statements deserve reverence.

And as far as it being opinion, an opinion is a personal truth, which isn't really the point. The point is that any you don't have to grind people down to because they do not agree with you, which is what Linus is doing there.
