As the Defender of All Faiths, he would be protecting the right of individuals to explore and hold to differing and even contrary responses to the great questions posed by the experiences of birth and death, as well as encouraging harmony, freedom, justice, mutual respect and tolerance. The example in the third century BC of the Emperor Ashoka of India springs to mind.
I'm sure that, as the Defender of All Faiths, he would best serve the peaceful and civilised growth of the multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-religious society which Britain has become.
