Christian News Network, http://christiannews.net/2013/04/04/homosexual-activist-to-present-lion-of-judah-painting-to-obama-during-easter-prayer-breakfast/ has reported that Obama has received a framed painting of the Lion of Judah as a gift from a "prophetic artist", Latimer Bowen Ramsey, http://latimerramsey.com/. It was presented to Obama by the Reverend Doctor Cindi Love, Executive Director of Soulforce, http://www.soulforce.org/, and http://www.edgeboston.com/index.php?ch=news&sc=&sc3=&id=104474, at the annual Easter prayer breakfast, calling Obama the "Great Includer".
Rev. Dr. Cindi Love http://www.revdrcindilove.com/, http://revcindilove.blogspot.com/, is a licensed professional minister ordained by Metropolitan Community Churches worldwide (gay affirming). She also holds standing in The Church of Uncommon Hope in San Francisco, CA. She is Executive Director of Soulforce, a member of the United Nations Compass Coalition for LGBT Human Rights, member of the Human Rights Campaign Religion & Faith Council in Washington, D.C., one of eight Country & Thematic Specialists for Amnesty International and author of Would Jesus Discriminate? The 21st Century Question. Rev. Love was the Pastor in Residence for the HBO documentary film All Aboard by Rosie O'Donnell. Rev. Love lives in Abilene, Texas with her legally married spouse, Sue Jennings. They have two adult children. She is also working for the Huffington Post and this is her biography there: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rev-dr-cindi-love/.
In this video, Ramsey clearly shows her mystical side in word, music, and art, although her own sexual and spiritual preferences are as yet unknown, pending further research. However, based on her associations, Ramsey is either neutral about the gay lifestyle and/or she's sympathetic and affirming, as well as totally non-judgmental when it comes to our evil president. At least we can declare without hesitation that Obama is not worthy of such a gift, not worthy of another inappropriate title (like Andy Stanley's naming Obama "pastor-in-chief"). Ramsey is talking about and painting pictures of a stylized, mystical, effeminate distortion (as in: "Nostril to Nostril Close", http://latimerramsey.com/nostril-to-nostril-close/), of a Jesus of her own imagination, a Jesus who returns to unite believers and unbelievers, saints and sinners, Christians and pagans alike within a universalist one world religion. This is absolutely a blasphemy of the first order, since the real Jesus of the Bible will return like a roaring lion to destroy the evils these people call good, not the tame lion "just getting along" with the other animals. So, as Ramsey seeks to spread her false gospel to billions across the globe by using her iconic, so-called "prophetic" artwork, we will recognize it for what it is, another heresy that denies the true Jesus who will hold these to accountability.
Brock Cravy, a professing Christian who operates the art gallery The White Buffalo, who arranged the presentation, likewise claimed that God had arranged the homosexual activist to present the painting to the White House.
"Soulforce is a religious organization that promotes homosexuality nationwide. It was founded by Mel White, the former ghost writer for Billy Graham, Pat Robertson and the late Jerry Falwell, who later came out as a homosexual.
Apprising indicates in http://apprising.org/2009/06/29/richard-rohr-letter-of-endorsement-for-soulforce/, that Soulforce was co-founded by two men, Mel White and Gary Nixon, who also happen to be “Christian” homosexual lovers:
Soulforce is also behind the youth tour “Equality Ride,” which visits Christian colleges and universities across the country to urge students to become open and accepting of the homosexual lifestyle." See: http://juicyecumenism.com/2013/04/03/evangelical-colleges-inching-toward-affirmation-of-homosexuality/.During the past six years, Mel White and his partner, Gary Nixon, have traveled across the country, speaking on university campuses, teaching the “soul force” principles of Gandhi and King, organizing people of faith…the Rev. Dr. Mel White was awarded the ACLU’s National Civil Liberties Award for his efforts to apply the “soul force” principles of Gandhi and King to the struggle for justice for sexual minorities.Currently, Mel is writing a sequel to his best-selling autobiography, Stranger at the Gate: To Be Gay And Christian In America… For 30 years, Dr. White had served the evangelical Christian community as a pastor, seminary professor, best-selling author, prize-winning filmmaker, communication consultant and ghost writer to its most famous and powerful leaders…Mel and Gary met and fell in love fifteen years ago at All Saints Episcopal Church where Mel served on the vestry and Gary sang baritone in the Coventry Choir… Dr. White has dedicated his life to a ministry of change. “Until this nation accepts God’s gay and lesbian children as full members of the human family,” White explains, “we must go on telling that truth in love, whatever it might cost us.” (Online source)

Soulforce is behind the "right to marry" for LGBTQ persons:
Soulforce did a "meditation mob" OM at the state capitol building in Austin, Texas, on Veterans Day, 2012, and this video is narrated by Cindi Love, who claims she was once a fundamentalist Christian whose "understanding has evolved":
Meditation Mob http://medmob.org/, has been organizing OM meditations all around the country, as in one of their events in 2011, also at the state capitol in Austin, Texas. Over 300 people joined in unison for a one hour silent meditation followed by a sound-bath of OMs that resonated throughout the capitol dome. The intention of the movement is to organize meditations open to all walks of life, all over the world, expanding peace on the planet by exposing the world to meditation, & accelerating our personal and planetary evolution:
Apprising, however, pointed out the connection between Richard Rohr, quasi-universalist, mystic Catholic Franciscan priest, and his endorsement of Soulforce here: http://apprising.org/2009/06/29/richard-rohr-letter-of-endorsement-for-soulforce/.
Rohr is also quoted in full at: http://www.archives.soulforce.org/2000/10/08/fr-richard-rohrs-letter-of-endorsement/. Here is the full letter:
committed to freedom for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people from religious and political oppression through relentless nonviolent resistance.
