Over the weekend, parody coffee shop 'Dumb Starbucks' took L.A. and social media by storm, and its creator has now revealed himself as comedian Nathan Fielder of Comedy Central's 'Nathan for You'.

Fielder showed his face yesterday at a press conference and in a video on YouTube, though he's not breaking character.

In related news, Fielder made NOM feel like they had won something for a moment (which just doesn't happen these days). The National Organization for Marriage published a dumb post about how thrilled they were that an equality-minded organization was being labeled 'dumb' suggesting that it was similar to their failed 'Dump Starbucks' campaign.

Long lines are forming at a "Dumb Starbucks" coffee shop at 1802 Hillhurst in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. The shop looks and feels like a regular Starbucks but the word "dumb" precedes every branded item sold there. And the whole thing feels a bit like a Banksy stunt.

NRA Commentator Compares Starbucks Policy Against Guns to Anti-Gay Discrimination: VIDEO

Noir

Gun enthusiast and NRA News commentator Colion Noir is not happy about Starbucks new policy asking customers to leave their guns at home.

Says Noir:

"In the wake of Starbucks coming out of the proverbial anti-gun closet - yes, I said anti-gun - because when you request that I don't bring my gun with me into your store, that's an anti-gun stance. Think about it. When you say 'We're not pro- or anti-gay but please all gay people - we respectfully ask that you not bring your gayness into the store. I mean, we'll still serve you, but if you can leave the gayness at the door, we would much appreciate it.' Now if that's what they said I highly doubt Tom Ford would go start designing a black Tuscan coffee signature cologne in support of this stance."

Evangelical Pastor to Christians: Don't Drink at Starbucks - VIDEO

Minister David Barton

"You can't drink Starbucks and be biblically right on this thing [marriage]. It's just a real simple principle," said David Barton, an evangelical pastor who is the former vice-chair of the Republican Party of Texas, during a service at Whitesburg Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama. 

Towleroad reported on David Barton last year when he claimed that America, as a nation, was "going down" for supporting same-sex marriage. 

The full quote, via RightWingWatch:

"Starbucks is pouring all this money into destroying tradtional marriage. The question is, can a Christian give money to a group he knows will use it to attack what God supports. If you know that when you buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks that 5, 10, 15 cents is going to be used to defeat marriage, can you do that? The answer is no. Biblically, there's no way a Christian can help support what is attacking God. I'm sorry, you've got to find some other coffee to drink. You can't drink Starbucks and be biblically right on this thing. It's just a real simple principle."
