Barney Frank is one of this country's most respected politicians and an elder statesmen in the gay community. The first congressman to voluntarily come out, Frank has been a stalwart support of gay rights ever since. So when Frank went on Conan last night, O'Brien was sure to ask him about Indiana's religious freedom law.

"In Indiana the calvary arrived, by which I mean the business community," said the 75-year-old former congressman about big-businesses advocating against the law. "In America, it's nice to have the morally committed people on your side, but when the profit motive comes into the fight then you're in great shape."

Frank also voiced his opinion of Netflix's hit series House of Cards. "I'm a great believer in free speech and I defend the right of people to say obnoxious things about me and everybody else, but if I was going to make an exception, I would ban House of Cards from being shown." So I guess he's not holding tight for season 4.
