They can't accept anything outside their own worldview. Because of that, an exercise routine, especially one with roots in another religion, from another culture, is something that's going to freak them out.

Something I wonder about the anti yoga bit. I wonder if it's because it origionated from another religion? Or if it origionated from another culture and these people are smart enough to find a reason that doesn't sound racist?

I'll stop eating beef lamb and pork the same day they start letting me eat vegetarians.

If your faith is so weak that people doing stretches threaten it, you need to reexamine you life.

Ironbite-and your faith.

Both usually.
Despite knowing about indoctrination I thought it was a good idea to put a human Reaper near my office. Now I am a sentient husk :(.
