I read that as well. It just doesn't specifically say that contributions and earnings are free from the 10% penalty. Assuming they are, would the earnings be subject to income tax as that money will have never been taxed at all?

I looked up the pub and gave you the reference. At this point, you should probably consult with a tax professional prior to removing the money from a Roth if the publication doesn't answer your questions.
