Indiana has been all over the news this week for its absurd anti-gay "religious freedom" law which gives businesses a loophole for refusing services to LGBT people on religious grounds. Conan O'Brien decided to check in with the state's "religion czar" Don Beederman on Tuesday's show (Chris Parnell, that is) to get a better sense of his platform on the issue that's sweeping the nation.

"You just can't identify every homosexual at a glance!," Conan exclaims, before getting cut off by Beederman. "Well you can if you've done the research -- and I have," he counters.

Beederman goes on to share his goofy findings from spending "literally thousands of hours studying the habits of homosexuals." That includes, of course, "reading their literature" and "watching their erotic adventures on DVD."

You can watch the absurdly hilarious takedown of the law below:
