From morning news programs and classic TV shows to the pop cultural phenomenon otherwise known as the Kardashian family, RuPaul's Drag Race has a lengthy track record of lovingly lampooning social constructs, and as EW's exclusive clip from Friday's episode proves, even members of the clergy aren't safe from the show's catty cast of queens.

For this week's main challenge, competitors are split into three teams and tasked with writing and performing their own TV pilots. Paired together, Alexis Michelle, Trinity Taylor, and Peppermint — who previously became the first contestant to enter the competition as an out, transgender woman — take aim at religious conservatives, spinning a hilarious sitcom about two mothers (Michelle and Peppermint) clashing over their son's "conversion" to homosexuality, for which they blame each other. <iframe src="" width="512" height="288" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" class="" scrolling="no" resize="0" replace_attributes="1" name=""></iframe>

"Your son is always listening to Broadway show tunes!" Peppermint screams. Michelle responds: "Well, your son is always bakin' cakes!"

In an attempt to solve the dispute, which sees Peppermint further accusing Michelle's son of "always having something in his mouth," Taylor — dressed as a nun — butts in.

"Children, it's not the end of the world… Children!" she interrupts, holding a crucifix in front of her. "Father Ross, his breath always smells like d—, too!"

RuPaul's Drag Race airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on VH1. Watch EW's exclusive preview of this week's episode above.
