Headlines of no distinction

Speaking of semantic genius, I notice another headline from yet another local conservative blog, courtesy the BNN feed, as follows:
Founding fathers wanted us to be free OF religion, not free FROM religion
And the difference is?
Louse-Off shampoo will keep you free OF head lice, not free FROM head lice

But if it's correct the founding fathers wanted us to be free of religion, I can certainly accept that. And even offer a hearty "Amen." So don't let anyone tell you a conservative blogger never said something objectively true. Sometimes they do — by mistake.
