On Behalf Of MHB's Staff,
Good to see you around again.
Welcome back to MHB!
Why play safe? Aren't you living in a free country?
I don't know (yet) if I've got something worth posting, but I have a comment on your last sentence.
Two things about hoping to not offend:
1. It would be rediculous to be offended, and besides somebody, inevitably, is likely to be "offended".
2. (reasonale ) Opinions are not meant to offend. By contrast, in science "offending" is not relevant.
So why should it be different when it comes to religulous matters?
Yes indeed. I now view Bach as the better composer than Beethoven. My favorite single piece of music, though, is still Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto.
