Time for Another Neologism

I finally got around to looking up the definition of "antidisestablishmentarianism," and interestingly enough it's:

A political philosophy opposed to the separation of church and state, esp. opponents in 19th century England against separating the Anglican church from the state.

Well, since we've got a new movement here in America trying to do the same thing, how about we call them "neoantidisestablishmentarians"? And for those of us who are trying to fight back against them, how about "contraneoantidisestablishmentarians"? So, our movement as a whole would be "contraneoantidisestablishmentarianism" and we operate "contraneoantidisestablishmentarianistically." Try saying that in one breath.
