| by Michael Allen

Beyonce offended many folks last month after using part of the audio from the Challenger shuttle disaster in her new song "OX."

The singer claimed that she was simply trying to help families of the 1986 disaster "heal," but several of the families condemned the exploitation of their loved ones.

Barely into 2014, Beyonce has stepped on toes again.

The Christian Post reports that the 32-year-old star posted a picture on Instagram of herself posing in front of a painting of "The Last Supper," in which she blocks the image of Jesus.

"The Last Supper" is when Jesus had his last meal with his disciples.

According to The Huffington Post, Beyonce was sitting in front of an Andy Warhol painting of "The Last Supper" in a Miami juice bar.

However, Tim Wildmon, president of American Family Association, is not giving Beyonce the benefit of the doubt.

Wildmon said in a statement: "Is nothing sacred anymore? This is clearly an act of disrespect towards Jesus Christ, whom Beyonce covers up with her pose. This had to be done intentionally."

"However, you will not see the media condemn her for offending Christians in the same way they did Phil Robertson for offending homosexuals because there is a double-standard," added Wildmon. "Christians are the only group in America you can bash with impunity."
