And, yes, quite often I find my hands being grabbed.
A few churches in my denomination do this. Urk. I have taken to "folding" my hands in the classic prayer position, as soon as that part approaches. Then, if they grab my hand, they

As far as the art thing goes, I stick to my guns. Display what you like, and so will we. Even if it IS that ... Buddhist version of the Mapplethorpe print of Jesus which offends so many people. Don't like it, don't look.
I'm confused. I don't know the Mapplethorpe print - and I don't want to know, having seen enough of his other work. But if it is offensive to Christians, wouldn't your version be offensive to Buddists?
And, "Don't like it, don't look" doesn't work if something is large and prominently displayed.
