I don't see how the two are mutually exclusive.

Not only do I think there is, I think there's some irony to claims to the contrary in that you'd be limiting acknowledgment of free thinking based on a very concrete criterion.

It's an interesting thought, but I wouldn't mind some context here?

I think I am. I converted to catholicism after being atheist for 20 years!

I think that you have to acknowledge the reality of the purposes of faith in order for you to fully commit your mind to anything. I think of free thinking as being independently able to manipulate your circumstance. No matter the circumstance. Free thinking is not the drivel of conversation that happened in your college dorm room.

Yes. Unless someone is in a cult, they can free-thinkingly choose to follow whatever parts of a religion they want, and to free-thinkingly form opinions about anything.
