Video shows Chinese police beating Christians

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's David McKenzie has the report.

    It is now clear that China is one of the Countries that supply arms and military hard wares to the ISIS group.The World should Ban All Chinese Goods entering All Christian Countries allover the Globe.I guess the growth of Chinese economy is puffing of their head.China is now ISIS Country and all the Christians that go to China for their sub standard goods should rethink.What has the Christians done that will warrant their going into the Place of worship and attack innocent Souls.Is there no freedom of worship in their Country.The anger of God will one day decent on the prosecutors of innocent worshipers like what happened with Sodom and Gomorar. Chinese Government should intervene so that the anger of God will not visit them.

    Unfortunately, I had DWI's after my husband passed in 1990. I was sorrier to lose the right to own guns than I was to lose driving privileges.

      When a new bird fills it's Tommy ,it ask God to come And take him or her, but when God comes to take him/her it will say I am sorry I do not want to die now.
      Unguided wealth acquired by undisciplined man makes undisciplined man to behave indifferently.A civilized man is a man who knows when He reaches his limits without fumbling. China should rethink they are not greater than World.

    We were absolutely justifying in striking ISIS and related groups like Khorazan. Forget for a moment our historic role as world policeman. They threatened us on our home turf, encouraging lone wolves to kill Americans and other Westerners any way they can.

    When someone figures out how to finally disarm all the criminals, they possibly law-abiding citizens might consider turning in theirs!

    I've been trying valiantly to reply to a Twitter post to no avail. Look, about guns... Criminals with illegal weapons will continue to obtain them. That's why EVERYONE ELSE needs guns.

    -The meaning of life is that redemption comes to us all, yet it's if we choose to accept it or not; in other words, "We're all the same, except some of are saved."
