About a century or two ago, the Pope decided that all the Chinese had to
leave Italy. Naturally there was a big uproar from the Chinese community.
So the Pope made a deal.
He would have a religious debate with a member of the Chinese community.
If the Chinese win, they could stay.
If the Pope wins, the Chinese would leave.
