Moral opinions are still opinions though, or theories otherwise. For example, I have a moral system based on a scientifically informed epistemology I whipped up which, long story short, traces from the fact of perceiving in a universe of information exchange (all matter being informed into the present from the immediate past) to true knowledge being held by that mind as a moral prerogative. It goes beyond survival, to the idea of retaining that state of "mind" and "consciousness", and having to do things to maintain those states, to intake more true knowledge, and apply it to ever increasing states of minds. Which is at best a theory, but probably more of an opinion, and although I hold it strongly, and other morals, and a few of them I feel so stubborn about I may never change them - the value of an individual life and personal freedom - but for the most part I would change any moral view given better data or better arguments.

There's a difference between having an opinion and holding that belief as a moral (a belief one views as nessesary for survival). Some folks don't realize that to some people, their opinions are actually revered as a moral.

It would depend on whether you consider an opinion to be any strongly held belief.
