Why is that we value more dieing for our country than dieing for out faith?

Usually we despise people who die for their faith, as these deaths are usually depicted as "stupid" and sometimes associated with terrorism and we praise those who die for their own country and call them heroes.

    to die for "your" is faith is to live in what you believe in.

    both philosophy can be exagerated e.g patriotism, faithful believer. due to lack of peace with oneself.
