Just out of curiosity: What's their definition of freedom anyway?

Forcing the user to not use non-free software takes away their freedom,
but probably the FSF does not get that, or they wouldn't be pushing the
GPL so badly.

But is there any real reason behind that, apart from the religious ones?


P.S.: I would prefer non-free and contrib being completely removed as
well, but my question is why that has to be forced on others.
