Controversy for Good Templars in Sweden about recording religious affiliation

The temperance society IOGT-NTO has been criticized for keeping records of religious affiliation of some of its members which is contrary to Swedish law. Specifically the Good Templar organization identified some members as Free Church. The temperance society lost many Free Church members when it expelled a Free Church minister after he made remarks regarded as homophobic. For more, see here.
