Bruce R. McConkie, BYU Devotional speech, 2 March 1982:

     "Let us set forth those doctrines and concepts that a gracious
     God has given to us in this day and which must be understood in
     order to gain eternal life. They are: 

     "1. We worship the Father and him only and no one else. 

     "We do not worship the Son and we do not worship the Holy Ghost.
     I know perfectly well what the scriptures say about worshipping
     Christ and Jehovah, but they are speaking in an entirely
     different sense--the sense of standing in awe and being
     reverentially grateful to Him who has redeemed us. Worship in
     the true and saving sense is reserved for God the first, the
     Creator."

I don't believe Elder McConkie's teachings on the topic conflict with 
the other quotations you provided, and it does clearly teach that we do 
not worship Christ in the same sense as we worship the Father. I can't 
speak for Marc, of course (heaven forbid I try!), and truthfully I don't 
even remember the context of what he said; but in my mind this teaching 
gives validity to the doctrine that we don't worship Christ. At this 
point, I think it's all a matter of definition.
