What does it mean to "personally oppose" something?

I think to personally oppose something, but publicly favor it, is to reveal an innate contempt for your fellow man. One who would not participate in something they deemed immoral, yet allow others, encourage others, make it as easy as possible for others to commit the deed is the epitome of selfishness. They acknowlege that said act is damaging to their own soul, but don't care enough about their fellow man's soul to publicly act in accordance to their own conscience's dictates. That glaring flaw in an aspiring public servant's personality should prohibit their ever attaining office. Fact is that they care nothing for the public.
