Being against the idea of the state removing their approval, recognition and/or backing and support of an establishment such as a church.
The FAA and federal and local governments will kill more people if the current antidisestablishmentarianism continues.

Any sort of endlessly complicated political, legal, or social maneuver that regular people don't understand.

Since "antidisestablishmentarianism" is a long and complicated word that few know the meaning of, people use it to describe similar concepts.
Dude, I watched the news last night, and there was some major antidisestablishmentarianism going on that I didn't understand.

A really long and complicated word used by kids to sound smart, when in all reality, very few people know what it means. Let's break it down:

anti - against, negative (anti-matter)
dis - un, anti, or not (displeased)
establishment - They way things are because the big guys say so ( "down with the establishment man!")
arianism - suffix to turn a word into a person that does something, or has a certain set of beliefs. (vegetarianism is a healthy alternative diet)

So, an antidisestablishmentarian is someone against those who are against the establishment. In all, it a rather redundant, pointless word.
antidisestablishmentarianism is a really stupid word.

Oppostion to the position of the removal of goverment support of the church. Opposition to the doctrine of seperation of church and state.

Oppostion to the position of abolishment of state/official religion.

But more usually just cited as an example of a very long english word. See Psuedoultrapsuedoantidisestablishmentarianism

1) The belief which opposes removing the tie between church and state.
2) An annoyingly long word which you can use to show off in front of your friends, and either look cool or a nerd.
"What's your favourite word?"
"Well, i'll have to say it's antidisestablishmentarianism"
"Seriously WTF?"
