"Yes".  :)

Back when we got these questions -- Elgamal?  RSA?  DSA?  Help? -- we
used to tell people what mattered far, far more than which algorithm
they used was how much care they gave to their system.  Keep your system
malware-free.  Don't sign things willy-nilly without reading them first.
 Be careful who you share your system with.  Etcetera.

I have never ever heard of a cryptographic break against OpenPGP.  I've
seen people be careless many times.  I'm far more worried about that
than I am which algorithm you use.
