My brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks has been very active on Facebook, Spreely, and possibly on other social media sites looking for people to “friend” and “follow” him and his unregistered “ministries” (ETC Ministries and Simplicity of Christ / SOC Ministries) and his “businesses” (Weddings Thru the Lens, Fotos by Ken). My brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks has a long history of posting under various false identities to communicate with himself and to attack other people. He has at times tried to impersonate me on social media sites and in his own constructed websites. He routinely engages in character assassinations of public figures and ordinary private citizens. As a limited-purpose public figure – “ministries” leader, “pastor,” and “business” operator – Ken “Pastor Max” Parks publicly posts ad nauseum in what could easily be perceived as a trusted authoritative manner about various public interest issues regarding religious and political topics, apparently capitalizing off of common complaints against the worst practices of some churches, religious figures and religious organizations, and expressing political viewpoints all to gain attention, camaraderie, and exert influence over others. Yet my husband and I believe the documentation against my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks demonstrates he has committed just as bad or worse actions upon others as the worst religious figures have committed against their victims. We therefore believe it is reasonable to conclude that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks has zero credibility to criticize any other religious frauds. TO REPEAT: It is our reasonable opinion that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks uses misrepresentations of himself as a “pastor,” a “ministries” leader, and as a “business” operator to defame private and public figures, and uses Bible verses and other religious jargon, as well as a range of topics, to apparently give the impression that he’s a reputable, trusted, “persecuted,” religious expert, and “business” operator – a limited-purpose public figure – so as to lure people into trusting him, giving him sympathy, and most likely giving him financial support/donations.
I very clearly remember in the 1970s and 1980s my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks deriding Christians and other religious people as “stupid” and easy to deceive. I also very distinctly remember my brother repeatedly proclaiming that he was going to become “rich, famous, and feared.”
Also disturbing is my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ recent associations since around 2015 with African Americans and African nationals. My husband and I find his recent associations with black people highly suspect since I have firsthand witnessed my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks, along with my three other brothers, expressing to varying degrees racist comments against black people most of their lives, including deriding me for having friends who are black. Consistent with my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ racist comments that I have witnessed firsthand – referring to black people as “jigaboos,” and as “dirty, lazy niggers” – I don’t find it at all surprising for him to target black people with his religious jargon, along with targeting “stupid Christians.”
Below is a video my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks posted on YouTube regarding his encounter with a group of people in a parking lot who appear to be black. My brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks claimed on his Facebook public pages that these people were throwing “a party in the road way.” In reality, the video shows what appears in every way not to be a “party” nor a “road way” but a parking lot, and the people involved, who appear to be black, are not blocking anyone from exiting the parking lot. We believe the video, albeit without any audio, combined with his Facebook post, speak for themselves about how antagonistic and confrontational my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks is toward people in general and perhaps black people in particular:
