Ben Stein Fired for Not Believing in Global Warming
Thanks to his often-controversial beliefs, unmanned drone Ben Stein has found himself unfairly ostracized, limited to just a handful of talk show appearances, guest columns, movie cameos, theatrically run documentaries, public speaking gigs, and corporate spokesperson jobs every year. But now he’s finally fighting back, filing a lawsuit against Japanese electronics company Kyocera and advertising agency Seitz & Miller that alleges breach of contract and wrongful discharge, with Stein claiming he was dropped from a campaign for Kyocera printers once the very publicly green company learned that Stein doesn’t believe in global warming.
According to the complaint, Stein and Kyocera had not officially signed a contract, but had still worked out all aspects of the $300,000 deal—leaving only the question of “what kind of tea and other snacks Ben Stein would have on the set”—when the ad agency was informed that Kyocera had become concerned as to whether “Stein’s views on global warming and on the environment were sufficiently conventional and politically correct” to represent Kyocera, let alone eat their snacks. By way of response, Stein asked the agency to tell Kyocera that he was not certain that global warming was a man-made phenomenon as “he believed that God, and not man, controlled the weather,” because that is how you demonstrate to someone that you are rational. Yet somehow this did not assuage Kyocera’s fears, so they backed out of the deal, creating a storm of controversy not unlike those cooked up by God on a regular basis, up there in his weather whirligig.
Adding insult to injury, Stein then discovered that Kyocera had—“in an astonishingly brazen misappropriation”—simply replaced him with another glasses-wearing guy in a tie and sport jacket, one who presumably doesn’t believe that God decides when you’ll need to take a sweater, thus robbing Ben Stein of the comedic persona that he had worked so hard to develop accidentally. This added “emotional distress” to Stein’s many claims, which also include religious discrimination and infringing upon his right to political expression—a right which has now been compromised because they refuse to give Ben Stein $300,000 plus snacks to sell some printers. At last report, Stein was praying for God to make it rain, just to hide his tears.
Watchwoman: Here’s what the Bible says about WHO controls WHAT! ▬ Donna Calvin
[Psalms 93:1-4 KJV] The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.  Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.  The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.  The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
[Acts 14:15 KJV] And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:
[Acts 17:24 KJV] God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

Psalm 148:8 declares that storms “do his bidding.” Concerning Jonah, it was the Lord who “sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea” (Jonah 1:4 KJV). Old Testament writers did not hesitate to attribute the forces of nature to God: “thy waterspouts … thy waves … thy billows” (Psalm 42:7 KJV). God spoke directly to Job out of a whirlwind (Job 38-41). The Lord made clear that His control over nature and His ultimate purposes are to be trusted. We simply cannot understand all the details of the divine plan. Job’s testimony demonstrates how trials should bring us closer to God instead of driving us away: “The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord” (Job 1:21 KJV).
Scripture contains many examples of God controlling the weather and using it to direct people and nations…
- Genesis 6:5-9:19 (Earth destroyed by flood, people and animals killed)
- Exodus 9:23-29 (hail and fire from heaven on Egypt)
- Joshua 10:11 (hail on the Amorites, etc.)
- I Samuel 7:10 (thunder disperses the Philistines)
- Nahum 1:3 (judgment with whirlwind and drought)
- Leviticus 26:19-20 (rainless sky, parched earth)
- Deuteronomy 11:13-15 (rain as reward for obedience)
- Deuteronomy 28:24 (drought punishment)
- I Samuel 12:18 (thunder and rain to get people’s attention)
- II Samuel 21:1 (drought and famine)
- I Kings 8:35-36 (good weather reward)
- I Kings 16:30-18:45 (rain withheld and given)
- Hosea 13:15 (dry weather)
- Amos 4:7 (rain given and withheld from certain cities)
- Jonah 1:4,10-15 (man punished and redirected by sea storm)
- Zechariah 14:17 (rain withheld as judgment)
- Revelation 16:21 (hailstone punishment)
