Exactly. And when you think about it, it's not all that different from getting wiped out by Exterminatus every now and then, or getting caught up in anti-mutant riots or witch hunts in your Imperial hive.
In every society, there has to be a paper pushing pencil-neck. Chaos societies are no different. I'd imagine that it'd even be possible to worship Chaos without a lot of the more obvious negative aspects (insanity, human sacrifice, etc) if you established certain "Ground rules."
