    No. Our organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t review specific movies, books, or songs so as to rule on what our members should avoid. Why not?

    The Bible encourages each individual to train his “perceptive powers” to discern right and wrong.—Hebrews 5:14.

    The Scriptures set forth basic principles that a Christian can weigh when selecting entertainment. As with all areas of life, our goal is to “keep on making sure of what is acceptable to the Lord.”—Ephesians 5:10.

    Similarly, with our dress and grooming, our organization does not have rigid dress codes or rules. Again, going along with the principle in Hebrews 5:14, they do not make that decision for you.

    We are provided with Bible principles to help guide our own personal choice of dress and grooming.

    The Bible encourages Christians to dress “with modesty and soundness of mind.” (1 Timothy 2:9, 10) Dressing “with modesty” means avoiding clothing that might draw attention to us by being showy, provocative, or revealing. Also, having “soundness of mind” helps us to choose attractive clothing that is not sloppy or extreme. These principles still leave room for a great variety of personal choices. Without our saying a word, our attractive and tasteful appearance can “adorn the teaching of our Savior” and “glorify God.” (Titus 2:10; 1 Peter 2:12)

    false...

    The more religious are more conservative but that applies to every religion.

    no religion fully controls their people. Most things are just tradition.

    both a silly.
