Is it wrong to have personal opinions now?

I have been reading about Chris Grayling's opinions on the story about the gay couple being refused to stay at a bed and breakfast.

Is it wrong in today's society to have personal opinions, even if it goes against what the mainstream say.

The people who owned the B&B are a very christian couple and, rightly or wrongly, refused to let the couple stay because they felt uncomfortable about letting a gay couple stay in their home.

Everyone has a right to their own opinions and beliefs, and no one should force them to change how they feel.

Chris Grayling said in his interview;

The recording of the meeting on Wednesday shows Mr Grayling said: "I think we need to allow people to have their own consciences.

"I personally always took the view that, if you look at the case of should a Christian hotel owner have the right to exclude a gay couple from a hotel, I took the view that if it's a question of somebody who's doing a B&B in their own home, that individual should have the right to decide who does and who doesn't come into their own home.

What he said was his own personal opinions on the subject.

Yes it upset some people with his remarks, and the political parties went into overdrive to say all of the Torys are homophobic.

Everyone is, or should be, allowed to have their own opinions and no one should be forced to change them

I will always support someone who expresses their own opinions, even if it goes against what i believe.

It is every one's Human right to have an opinion of their own, and no person, government or group should be allowed to force their opinions onto someone else.

Do they also refuse unmarried heterosexual couples from staying due to their religious beliefs? Because if they don't then that seems like a double standard to me.
