Why won't you hire someone who has a unfavorable opinion on a language? Do you feel the same way if he mentioned Java instead of Python?

That's clearly not what he said. He just wants actual, technical arguments against a given language, rather than baseless claims that make no sense.

I think it's quite reasonable to be suspicious of a interviewee who is against Python solely because it enforces sensible code indentation.

Though saying "I don't like python's code indentation" is not the same as "I'm against python". Well, at least I see no relation between the two.
