D. I personally believe that Dan was exiled not only because of their idolatry while in Israel, but that they refused to keep any part of YHVH's commandments or ordinances while in exile.

Think of the Vikings or Scotts and their ancient ways. Think of the sacrifices to Odin, or the blood eagle. Dan became monsters.
