ISIS first made global headlines, in part, for its aggressive targeting of Christians in Iraq. But Iraq is not the only nation where Christians currently suffer persecution.
Christians in China are facing the most brutal crackdown in decades from their own government. Exclusive video obtained by CNN shows police clashing with church members.

(CNN) - If you want to teach at a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, regardless of your religion, you must be willing to sign a detailed morality clause that critics say focuses on "pelvic issues."
The revised contracts forbid teachers from - among other things - living together or having sex outside of marriage, using in-vitro fertilization, a gay "lifestyle," or publicly supporting any of those things.
The system's 2,200 current teachers must sign the agreement to stay on the job.
"It is an embarrassment and a scandal, and will drive even more Catholics away from an institution so out of touch with its times," said Robert Hague, a high school English teacher for 50 years.
He's leaving his job rather than sign because he's opposed to "the language, the intent, and the tone of this contract," he says.
The revised morality clause goes beyond more general standard language requiring teachers - Catholic or not - to adhere to Catholic doctrine.
It would be a mistake to think people with no faith have no community. In fact, some atheists even have their own version of a church.

In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, former President Jimmy Carter talks about his letter to Pope Francis. In it, Carter called on the pontiff to support efforts to stop abuse against women.
"I asked him to join with me in doing some of these things to prevent slavery, and to prevent killings, and to prevent unnecessary prostitution, and to prevent things of that kind," Carter said.
The former president also said he didn't ask the Pope to change the Catholic Church's policy on female priest, which he supports.
"[The Pope] said the role of women within the Catholic Church should be enhanced in the future," Carter said.
Last year at this time a new Pope had just been elected and no one could have predicted how popular Pope France would become.
It's been a record-setting and trend-setting year.
