Secularise Royal Titles And Styles

A proposal to remove the words, “by the Grace of God” and “Defender of the Faith” from the current Royal title and style because they're inappropriate in a modern New Zealand context.

This is not republican legislation. It accepts that, for now, we are stuck with the British Queen. But if we are stuck with this institution why do we need to remain stuck with the religious mysticism that is used to add mystique to the monarch's right to reign over us?
