    About a century or two ago, the Pope decided that all the Sikhs had to
    leave
    Italy. Naturally there was a big uproar from the Sikh community.

    So the Pope made a deal. He would have a religious debate with a member
    of
    the Sikh community. If the Sikh won, the Sikhs could stay. If the Pope
    won,
    the Sikhs would leave. The Sikhs realized that they had no choice. So
    they
    picked a middle aged man named Santa Singh to represent them. Santa
    Singh
    asked for one condition to the debate. To make it more interesting,
    neither
    side would be allowed to talk. The Pope agreed.

    The day of the great debate came. Santa Singh & the Pope sat opposite
    each
    other for a full minute before the Pope raised his hand & showed three
    fingers. Santa Singh looked back at him & raised one finger. The Pope
    waved
    his fingers in a circle around his head. Santa Singh pointed to the
    ground
    where he sat. The Pope pulled out a wafer & a glass of wine. Santa
    Singh
    pulled out an apple.

    The Pope stood up & said, I give up! This man is just too good. The
    Sikhs
    can stay.

    An hour later, the cardinals were all around the Pope asking him what
    had
    happened.

    The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the trinity.
    He
    responded by holding up one finger to remind me that there was still
    one God
    common to both our religions. Then I waved my finger around me to show
    him
    that God was all around us. He responded by pointing to the ground &
    showing
    that God was also right here with us. I pulled out the wine & wafer to
    show
    that God absolves us from our sins. He pulled out an apple to remind me
    of
    original sin. He had an answer for everything. What could I do?"

    Meanwhile, the Sikh community had crowded around Santa Singh."What
    happened?" they asked.

    "Well," said Santa Singh, "First he said to me that the Sikhs had three
    days
    to get out of here. I told him that not one of us was leaving. Then he
    told
    me that this whole city would be cleared of Sikhs. I pointed down to
    let him
    know that we were staying right here in this land."

    "Yes, yes & then???" asked the crowd.

    "I don't know", said Santa Singh, "He took out his lunch & I took out
    mine
