How patriotism is connected with faith? About what faith you talking about?
I actually understand you. Antipatriotism leads to antirasism. But patriotism is not just a bad thing. IF you are patriotic, doesnt't mean you are xenophob. You just wishing all the best for your country and want to help it. Doesn't mean you want to destroy the other countries.
Maybe patriotism is dying concept, but it's not ridiculous.
I agree, I have friends who conside themselves quite intelligent and look down on those who are patriotic. But their is no shame in being proud of where you're from.
Trane is right as well though, patriotism can get out of hand in a hurry and is ugly when pushed upon people.
You show your patriotism through sports and not war or religion, that's a good thing.
