The whole thing of mutilating Star Wars with the special edition and replacing the originals with it so the originals may not be available in the future, that's a stab in the heart. That's no minor thing. That's crime against the huge numbers of people who loved the originals. Similarly, what was done in the prequels wasn't just bad filmmaking, it was horrendous destruction of something good. It was a crime against art. This is not just some bad filmmaking, this (the prequels, special editions, the whole anti-originals thing) is a major fucking crime. A lot of people are hurting bad because of it. What call was there to make a lot of people hurt? And why the heck should something loved by a ton of people be screwed up to satisfy the whims of one man? Quite simply, it's an outrage. And after that, no I don't think Lucas deserves respect any more. Heck, I don't think he respects me and the other fans of the originals (remember that thing he came out with about sorry you fell in love with a half-finished movie? That strikes me as a real dig at the fans of the originals. And I think many would say the GOUT's another dig at us. Not to mention his mutilating our beloved movies, with, as far as I can tell, no consideration for how we might feel). So I guess the feeling's mutual.
