The dislike toward organized religion can be traced to the early foundation of the medieval state, where the nobility had successfully undermined the power of the church and enforced a view in the eyes of the population as a greedy institution. Bohemia and Moravia was torn up by religious warfare through the Hussite War in 1419-1435, which had left the country in ruin and society was collectively attacked by crusades. The 30Year war and forceful catholization confirmed the view that the church is evil and cares only about money. While Poland or Serbia seen a church as the protector of its heritage, language, and culture, Czech identified any church as a symbol of oppression, totalitarianism, germanization, and source of impoverishment of many. Czech people would not give money to church as they collectively see that it can be better used (by them) or by the government. Secularization of Czech society was completed in WWI, where they see Catholic church as the main power of Austria. Communism only utilize the feel, and institutionalized otherwise widespread dislike of any religious community in the society. Czechs have thorough dislike toward organized religion and detest what organized church represents. Any case, Czechs are very spiritual, many believe in magics and God without acknowledge it openly. One thing you will hear from Czechs "I do not believe in God, but I am afraid when I die, he will punish me in hell for that".
