Asking someone to elaborate is not condescending, it is simply asking you to share your opinion. You've said you didn't realise you were entering into a full discussion, then say that others don't realise their opinions will be disputed. I think they are fully aware there will be dispute and are asking you to engage in this, but politely and respectfully.
