No, it doesn't. It never has. It's ridiculous to look at what the authors actually wrote and make the conclusion you are making except, as you already noted, you don't care what the authors wrote on the subject as it doesn't conform to your conclusion. And you have to match your already pre-determined conclusion with the facts or what fun is it all?
Perhaps that's why free speech and religion didn't have the preambles stating that their purpose wasn't for having a well-regulated press or priesthood.
