One could say that Alistair Crowley was a Freethinker, and I guess he was, in a way- but he worshiped his own defecations!

I agree with you that we should not focus on defining ourselves; having to work within a definition of what we are stifles what can do or say.  I would say that having some clear, concise definition is useful so far as to explain to the uninitiated who we are and what we hope to achieve. 

I think we should use these definitions as a reference and come up with our own.  And we should make it clear that freethinking demands only an open mind- not one with any particular religious or non-religious, political or social barriers.
