Deleted this paragraph from the opening: "By the way, this is more or less the definition of antidisestablishmentarianism; those against those against the establishment of a state religion, but not necessarily associated with the government itself."

My edit reason was, admittedly, mistaken, as the tortured syntax made me misconstrue what was being said. It still shouldn't be there, because it's off-topic. There's nothing inherently "rebelling against the rebells" about opposing the de jure separation of church and state in a country where the two are still fused in law. Sure, one might start out opposing a state religion and then switch back to the government side in a manner that invokes this trope, but the same could apply to almost literally any ideology.

Cut these:

* A Man for All Seasons tells the story of Thomas More (see Real Life folder)

* Thomas More, refusing to support King Henry VIII in splitting from the Catholic Church.
—>I die the King's good servant, but God's first.

Because they are not examples of this trope. More was a loyal Catholic who refused to support Henry's breakaway from Rome. To qualify for this trope, he would have to have been a Protestant who opposed Henry's reforms.
