I couldn't agree more with you, but at the same time, our past is what diffines our opinions. What happens in our youth, how were raised in our developing years is how we form and sculte this opinions. You never know whats happened in a persons past, and some very tramatic things do happen. Some topics are more personal then you may think, and hence, there opinions will be strong and steadfast. Whats more, empathy is a hard quality for a lot of people to use or mimic, after all, were only raised in 1 life, we only see from our own eyes, so its hard for us to see where people are coming from, or why they might think what they think.
