does the term "outstreached hand" bother anyone else?
I guess it's less obvious than "willing and open mouth"

*** Catholic bishops urge parents to accept gay children

U.S. Catholic bishops released a pastoral letter Wednesday urging
parents to accept, love and respect their homosexual children and
warning that rejection could lead to substance abuse or suicide. The
message, described as an "outstretched hand" to parents who learn
that their children are gay, was developed by the National Conference
of Catholic Bishops' committee on marriage and family. The letter
said fundamental rights of homosexual men and women were to be
respected and defended. While it urged acceptance of homosexual
orientations, it insisted sexual intercourse be limited to man and
wife in a marriage. For story
