Disestablishmentarianism is a person who favors the separation of church and state, especially the withdrawal of special rights, status, and support granted an established church by a state; an advocate of disestablishing a state church.
It originates from movements in Henry VIII's England to remove the "establishment" of the Catholic Church.
