The Need for Sua Sponte Judicial Review Laws For Pro Se Litigants’ Lawsuits

“This website addresses the problem of meritless, abusive lawsuits filed by self-represented / pro se litigants and calls for legislative action that requires judges to practice sua sponte judicial review of all pro se litigants’ lawsuits.

This website also addresses the problem of religious frauds and various disturbing and harmful tactics that religious frauds use against their victims – including filing meritless, abusive lawsuits.

The matters discussed in this website involve subjects which merit constitutionally protected public scrutiny, and this website provides documentation, commentary and opinion on matters of public concern.”

Throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s my mother and my husband and I received periodic late night and very early morning short rings on our phones.  My brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks, leader of his unregistered and financially unaccountable ETC Ministries and Simplicity of Christ / SOC Ministries, has had sporadic jobs in telecommunications.  These short rings on our phones never registered on caller ID and they were clearly intended to awaken us and annoy us.  Some of these calls came on dates that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks knew had importance to us, such as calls made on or around Mother’s Day, my mother’s birthday (May 2nd), my birthday, his birthday, and Christmas and Easter, so we concluded that these were targeted calls.

As of yet we cannot claim absolutely definitively that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks was behind the harassing phone calls or that he has incited others to harass us.  Nonetheless, even the most skeptical reader can conclude that there are strong indications he has succeeded in committing these actions against us and inciting his supporters against us and others as well.  The following accounts give a timeline of some of my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ tactics and include situations that give every impression that he succeeded in inciting others to stalk and harass us and his other targets.  Again, we cannot state conclusively that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks is behind every alarming, suspicious incident we’ve experienced, but we can state that it is our personal belief that we have good reason to suspect that he most likely has had a role in some if not all of the events, especially since he himself has published in his own words both his intention to incite others against us and his own published proof that he has succeeded in inciting others against us:

  • After my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ 2004 pro se lawsuit against us in Gwinnett County, Georgia (where we’ve never lived) was dismissed, he published in 2004 and 2005 posts in which he included our Colchester, Connecticut address with his threats to incite “militant extremists” to “visit” us.  His threats appeared to have succeeded in inciting others to stalk us and we reported to police those incidents of men sitting in their cars near our property when we lived in Connecticut.  We never had problems like this until my brother Ken Parks escalated his stalking and published his threats against my husband and me.
  • In late 2006, around the time my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks was being sued by the Georgia Revenue Department (judgment against him obtained, Fulton County, Georgia docket number 07GC083840 and Dekalb County, Georgia docket number 07G09959), he sent my employer a harassing, defamatory email in an attempt to get me fired.  When he failed to get me fired very soon thereafter my co-workers and I had our entire school email system overwhelmed every day with obscene spam emails.  Some of those emails contained distorted versions of my family’s names, which I can only assume was my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ method of cryptically letting me know that he was behind the overwhelming number of obscene spams the entire school system received.  The school’s technical department changed our email system in order to put a stop to the obscene spams.
  • In early 2008, as I exited our driveway on my way to work, I witnessed a man sitting in his car near our property.  He had a large dog crate in his car (we owned a large dog at the time).  I pulled up next to the man and asked him if he needed assistance.  He very noticeably turned away his face and mumbled about looking for a friend’s hunting dog.  I was immediately suspicious and I called the police.  The police arrested the man on an outstanding warrant, but neither the police nor we could ascertain whether the man acted on orders, requests or influences from my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks to loiter around our property, potentially with the goal to forcibly enter our home and take and/or kill our dog.  This incident happened very shortly after my husband and I, working with our legislator, proposed a stalking bill in Connecticut’s legislature.  That bill, with our names attached to that bill, was easily found on the state of Connecticut’s legislative website by using our names to get search engine results.
  • In late April, 2009, my mother finally resorted to changing her telephone number to an unpublished number after she experienced an escalation in annoying late night and very early morning phone calls.  A few days later on her May 2nd birthday my husband and I were present with her when she received two calls on her new unpublished phone number; we let these two calls go to her voice mail.  The calls were from her Colorado son, and he left two screaming, erratic, insulting messages on her answering machine, claiming he got her new unpublished phone number “from T-Mobile.”  My husband and I made and have kept recorded copies of the two harassing phone messages my Colorado brother left on my mother’s voice mail on the date of her birthday.  My mother had not yet given out her new unpublished telephone number except to us, and we had not notified anyone of her new unpublished phone number.  My mother called T-Mobile and they confirmed that they had no information on her new unpublished phone number.  My mother then called AT&T where she knew from my brother Ken Parks’ oldest son that he was at that time employed as a subcontractor.  My mother explained to one of AT&T’s managers about the likely hack my brother Ken Parks may have committed in order to get at her new unpublished phone number and then apparently hand off that new phone number to her Colorado son so he could make his harassing calls.  She also informed the AT&T manager of my brother Ken Parks’ long history of boasting about committing cyber crimes and being investigated and warned by the FBI to cease committing those cyber crimes.  Consequently, my brother Ken Parks apparently lost his subcontractor position at AT&T, and he immediately threatened, but didn’t carry through, to file one of his meritless pro se lawsuits against me, my husband and my mother in the summer of 2009.  AT&T gave my mother a second new unpublished phone number free of charge.
  • In 2013 my brother filed pro se his second lawsuit against us in Fulton County, Georgia (again, where we never lived).  That lawsuit was also dismissed.
  • In 2013 and early 2014, shortly after we moved from Connecticut, my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks retaliated for losing the 2013 lawsuit that he filed pro se against us by making multiple trips from Georgia to Connecticut to harass our former neighbors, the people who purchased our former home, and my mother’s former neighbors.  During those trips he attempted to file false police reports against us and one of my mother’s former neighbors (a woman), and he harassed some of our friends, even to the point of apparently impersonating a senior police officer in a letter sent to one of our friends.
  • In 2013 we experienced strong indications that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks had hacked our email accounts, relatives’ email accounts, and friends’ email accounts.  One of our friends showed us my brother Ken Parks’ Facebook page and he had posted photos that I had emailed to relatives.  These were original one-of-a-kind photos and there is no way my brother had copies of these photos.  Using a separate email address, my husband and I had also emailed our friends about arrangements to meet them at a restaurant in Connecticut when we vacationed there in the fall of 2014.  The restaurant was right next to the cemetery where my parents are buried.  Cemetery security camera photos showed that my two other harassing brothers were in the cemetery at the same exact time my husband and I were meeting with our friends in the restaurant next to the cemetery.  Those two brothers had not been in the cemetery for months and had never been there together.  The cemetery security cameras were installed due to the harassment the cemetery director had experienced from my brothers and due to vandalism concerns.  We also have security camera evidence of strange men loitering at all hours of the day and night at the gravesite of my parents, including on Mother’s Day.
  • In early 2015 my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ public Facebook posts showed the support he received from his “friends”/”followers” to file pro se another meritless, abusive lawsuit against us.  His “friends”/”followers” apparently have believed all the lies he’s published publicly about us and presumably even more lies he’s published privately on Facebook and most likely in private conversations with his “friends”/”followers”:

State of Connecticut, Notice To Scott Buchanan and Paulette Buchanan


CASE NAME: Defamation, Libel, Libel Per Se, Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress, and Interference with Business or Employment Relations

The Plaintiff, Kenneth F. Parks, has named you, the Defendants, Scott Buchanan and Paulette Buchanan in the complaint “Defamation, Libel, Libel Per Se, Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress, and Interference with Business or Employment Relations” which the Plain…

GOOD NEWS: The Judge in New London County has signed the Order of Notice. Now it’s publication time.
If the Defendants, Scott Buchanan and Paulette Buchanan, fail to respond within 30 days after the last publication date in the New London Day newspaper, I will immediately file for Motion for Judgement. And in that Motion, inclusive, will be that the Defendants be psychologically examined at their cost. Actual damages and court costs and fees have amounted to more than $50,000.

Ken Parks Kathy Clark McCarthy, I filed a major Libel Suit against the Defendants who have skipped out, sold their home and cannot be located. So I have to serve them legally by means of publication. I had to show evidence to the Judge that the defendants are likely to discover the publication and still have an association with New London County, CT pursuant to section 11-4 of the CT Practice Book.

Kathy Clark McCarthy Wow! It must have been bad! People can be such jerks!

March 4 at 7:58pm

Kathy Clark McCarthy Don’t give up! Fight to the end!

Kit Gibler Milks You go Ken. I hope now It can be resolved quickly. Prayers

One cannot be sure of anything, even if there is considerable prayers. It’s God’s will and not the decisions of men. God can move their heart in making the proper decision.

All I can say is that I believe to have done a thorough presentation and answering the Defendants’ allegations in the “Motion to Dismiss” before the New London Superior Court. The Judge asked me some questions pertaining to the tortuous acts as to whether they occurred while the Defendants lived in CT. …

The frivolous attempt to use the case law of Dunleavy v. Dunleavy had nothing to do with my case because the CT General Statute (section 5177) is only for divorce cases and this statute of 1946 no longer exist. I explained to the Court that the guidelines of the CT Practice Book has been established when it comes to substituted process of service such as publishing in the newspaper and the likelihood that the Defendants would discover and read it.

Once the Judge was made aware of the Defendants’ letter to Cosgrove and the images attached, it showed that the Defendants found my public Facebook and the publication of the Notice in the Day newspaper – This met the proper and sufficient means of Process of Service.

I believe that I have a 90% chance of getting the Defendants’ “Motion to Dismiss” denied.

  • In April, 2015 my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks filed pro se his third lawsuit against us in Connecticut, where my husband and I had not lived since September, 2013.  We had not published our website since March, 2013 so any claims my brother made were past the two-year statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit.  After multiple phone calls to attorneys who used the standard statements that they will not take cases involving a pro se plaintiff, we were finally able to find a young attorney named Brandon Marley who promised to fight our case aggressively.  As events unfolded we have every reason to believe that Attorney Marley equated our desperation with dollar signs.  Despite our insistence, Attorney Marley failed to cite Connecticut’s statute of limitations prohibiting my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks from filing pro se his baseless lawsuit against us, failed to cite that most of my brother’s Complaint didn’t state a claim for which relief could be granted, and he failed to properly cite other precedent cases.  Consequently, although most of my brother’s baseless pro se lawsuit was dismissed, one part remained undismissed.  Public court records bear out the fact that after two and a half years of unethical delay tactics over our protests, Attorney Marley failed to obey the court’s scheduling order date for filing a Summary Judgment near the end of 2017.  We contacted a number of other attorneys who confirmed this was a very serious issue and they advised us to contact the senior attorney where Attorney Marley worked.  We contacted the senior attorney in the firm and asked him to “light a fire” under Attorney Marley to just do his job.  Instead, after reviewing our case, the senior attorney took over our case, had to refile motions that Attorney Marley had done poorly, and filed a hard-hitting Summary Judgment and Motion for Non-Suit against my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks.  Due to motions filed by the senior attorney the court also ordered my brother to produce tax records, medical records and other documents that my brother claimed he had, but he failed to obey that order.  My brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks then filed pro se his fourth lawsuit against us in Washington County, Tennessee in 2018 while virtually the same lawsuit was still pending in New London, Connecticut court and while he was refusing to comply with the Connecticut court’s orders.  Very shortly after the senior attorney filed the Summary Judgment and Motion for Non-Suit, my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks apparently recognized that a judgment was impending against him and withdrew his Connecticut lawsuit with prejudice, even though he had filed virtually the same lawsuit against us in Tennessee.  My brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks also filed a rambling screed against the New London, Connecticut judges and the senior attorney, claiming he was exposing their “wicked deeds of darkness.”  Whereas Attorney Brandon Marley had taken two and a half years to do virtually nothing for us to end my brother’s baseless, defamatory, libelous lawsuit (which was beyond the statute of limitations), the senior attorney shut down my brother’s lawsuit in about three months.  As of early January, 2018, Attorney Brandon Marley was no longer employed at the senior attorney’s law firm (apparently fired?).  Attorney Brandon Marley’s very poor handling of our case – as demonstrated in his own public court filings in our case – is public record.  The senior attorney gave us some monetary compensation for Attorney Brandon Marley’s poor handling of our case.
     

    We reported irrefutable proof of Attorney Brandon Marley’s violations of various codes of professional conduct to Connecticut’s Statewide Grievance Committee (again, court records are public records).  

  • In 2016, shortly after we moved to Sullivan County, Tennessee, I noticed a man in a place where I did volunteer work who looked like my brother who lives in Colorado.  I had not seen this brother since 2003.  This Colorado brother has been for decades working in collusion with our brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks to harass, stalk and defame me and our mother (our mother died in 2012) and apparently also fully supports his brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks advertising and promoting his unregistered “ministries” and “businesses;” we have no idea if my Colorado brother is profiting in any way from my other brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ unregistered “ministries” or “businesses.”  In 2013 the police in Connecticut where my husband and I lived at that time warned this Colorado brother to stop making harassing contact with us.  A few years before 2013 my husband and I had sent my Colorado brother a written cease and desist letter telling him to stop all forms of contact with us.  Prior to my mother’s death in 2012 she had also written a letter to her Colorado son telling him to no longer contact her.  When I saw the man who looked like my Colorado brother in the place where I did volunteer work I told myself that it couldn’t possibly be him because I could not figure out how he could have known where I did volunteer work.  Again, I had not seen my Colorado brother since 2003 and the man I saw was overweight and had gray hair and gray facial hair.  But I did comment about the incident to my husband when I arrived home.  Days later I received a call from the cemetery director in Connecticut where my parents’ grave site is located and he informed me that my Colorado brother and his wife had harassed him on the phone, asking repeatedly where my parents’ grave site was located.  When the cemetery director refused to tell them, my Colorado brother stated, “that’s ok, I already know where the grave site’s located.”  Cemetery security camera photos show that this Colorado brother and his wife were at my parents’ grave site only a few days after I saw the man who looked like my Colorado brother at the place where I did volunteer work.  The man I saw in Tennessee where I did volunteer work was indeed my Colorado brother based upon what this brother looked like in the Connecticut cemetery security camera photos.  My husband and I reasonably conclude that my Colorado brother and his wife most likely visited our brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks in Georgia, then traveled to Tennessee on their way to Connecticut for the express purpose of stalking my husband and me, including showing up in the place where I did volunteer work.  I believe it is reasonable to assume that my Colorado brother, while in Tennessee, either deliberately followed me in my car from a distance or placed an inexpensive tracking device on our vehicles, or both.  This is the extent my brothers will go to stalk, interfere, harass and cause alarm.
  • On May 2nd, 2017 I received a call on my Connecticut cell phone.  Again, May 2nd was my mother’s birthday. I didn’t answer the call but I researched the number.  I found that it belonged to a man in Norwich, Connecticut, a town just a couple of towns over from Colchester, Connecticut where my husband and I used to live up until September, 2013.  I also discovered that the man had a criminal history in Florida (where my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks had once lived) and that his birthday was exactly one month after my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ birthday.  My brother has a long history of finding cult followers/”friends” that have commonalities with him, inciting them to do his dirty work, and then using those commonalities with names, numbers, dates and other common factors apparently in order to send his cryptic messages to me and to others to let us know he’s behind these incidences of harassment.  It was also a likely indicator that Ken had most likely hacked AT&T again (the carrier for my old Connecticut cell phone) to obtain my cell phone number so that he could harass me any way he could.
  • Two days before my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ birthday at the end of May, 2017 a man acted suspiciously around my husband and me in one of the places where we frequently visit.  He deliberately waited for us to leave before he followed us out and started telling us he knows people we know, trying to make it sound like he was familiar with visiting our area.  But he got people’s names confused.  We left as quickly as we could to get away from the man.  As previously stated, we cannot state conclusively that this incident has a connection to my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks, but it was very suspiciously odd.
  • In the fall of 2017 my husband and I noticed a man in his car in front of our house slowing down to take a picture of our house and then quickly drive off.  We, of course found this behavior very suspicious, and we reported the incident and the license plate of his vehicle to our local police.  The police informed us that the man claimed he was an appraiser who had been appraising homes for a number of years, and the man claimed that he was simply taking a photo of our house for appraisal purposes.  Here’s the problem with that man’s “explanation”:  We moved into our new construction house in June, 2016, nearly a year and a half before this incident.  One of our good friends who is our realtor and whose company built our house confirmed that in the real estate market at that time there is no way even an inexperienced appraiser would use our house as a comparable nearly a year and a half after we moved into a new construction.  Our realtor confirmed that there are plenty of other houses in our area that would be far more appropriate to use as a comparable.  Furthermore, in Joni Parks’ deposition of 2019 she stated that her husband Ken “Pastor Max” Parks was running his own photography business taking photos of houses for real estate purposes.  We can’t find any business registration with the IRS or the state of Georgia using my brother’s name.  Regarding the man who photographed our house, we can only assume this may be yet another person in our area that my brother sought out and succeeded to incite against us.  We assume that Ken claimed to work as a photographer for real estate companies so as to lure this man in our area with a sense of camaraderie and common interests.   Once trust was established Ken most likely outraged the man against us with his usual horrific lies about us so that this man would “do a favor” for Ken by going so far as to take a photo of our house.  How that photo of our house has been or is now being used is as yet undiscovered.
  • In early 2019 I received on my new cell phone number two phone calls originating from a local number.  I didn’t answer the first call but some weeks later I answered my cell phone without checking the caller ID because I was expecting a call from someone.  Instead of the person I thought might be calling me I initially heard silence after I said “hello.”  After my second “hello” a man said, “Looks like you got a new number.”  I asked twice who was calling but the man ended the call instead of answering.  I looked at my caller ID and I noticed that the same number had called me once before very soon after I’d purchased my new cell phone with the new phone number.  I called the man back and left a message informing the man that his phone call was creepy and that he was not to call me again.  Knowing that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks has published online about his hacking abilities, and knowing what he most likely did to obtain my mother’s new unpublished AT&T phone number (and apparently for which he was terminated by AT&T), my husband and I and others very reasonably suspect my brother hacked into my cell phone carrier company (not AT&T) and passed along my new number to this man in our area that he sought out and succeeded in convincing to become one of his cult followers/”friends.”  (Previously my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ now deceased “friend” Bernardino “Dino” de Vincenzi specifically threatened in a written statement to us that my brother was an “expert” in computer tactics.)  I contacted the police, who called the man who called my new cell phone.  The police told me that the man claimed he dialed a wrong number, but no one dials a “wrong number” and then says “looks like you got a new number.”  The police told me they also warned the person not to call me again.  Additionally, we did some research into the man’s telephone number, found his name and address and the personal information on his Facebook page.  Lo and behold, true to all the other commonalities that we’ve found with other bizarre incidents, the man who called my new cell phone and told me “looks like you got a new number” was retired from the navy and had been stationed in Groton, Connecticut at one time – just as my father was in the navy and had been stationed and later worked at the Groton naval base (my mother and I had worked on that base as well).  The man was a former educator – just as I am an educator.  The man also lived at one time in Mystic, Connecticut, which is where my family lived for many years and where I lived for decades.  What are the odds?  Apparently my brother prowls around on the Internet, on Facebook, and most likely other social media sites looking for anyone with commonalities that he can target so as to incite with horrific lies about us to the point that these people will do his bidding to harass us.  We don’t know if he pays these people to harass us.  No doubt my brother knows we’ll research to the best of our abilities the people who are exhibiting bizarre or harassing behavior around us and that we’ll find the commonalities.  Apparently this is his sick way of communicating to us that he’s successful in his libelous defamation campaign against us to the point of apparently succeeding in inciting others to commit harassment against us on his behalf.
  • In June, 2019 my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks published on his public Facebook pages his false claim that my husband and I are “trolling” him online (he’s on at least Facebook and Spreely).  In reality we are not on Facebook or any other social media site.  As seen in the post below, my brother publishes ad nauseum his false accusation that we have committed perjury, when in reality his own public court filings are easily demonstrated to be his own acts of perjury.  In addition to a myriad of other false accusations, he has now added yet another – his false accusation that we belong to a cult.  We’re curious to know what cult he claims we belong to, especially since my husband and I are both members of an international group of professionals (International Cultic Studies Association) that educates people about cults/coercive groups/new religious movements and assists people harmed by these groups; ICSA offers articles and resources from a wide variety of religious/non-religious, political and professional perspectives.  My husband and I have also spoken out strongly against religious/spiritual abuse and physical/sexual abuse taking place in our own denomination, in other denominations, and other religious and non-religious organizations.  For every false accusation that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks has ever made against us and many others there are public records and the history of his own writings that demonstrate he is actually guilty of all that he falsely accuses us and his other victims of committing.  The below posts show that one of his “friends”/”followers” named Lanie Lampard has believed his lies and joins in with him in defaming us (all indications are that “Zack Abrams” is one of my brother’s false identities; “Abrams” is the last name of three teenagers he tried to date when he was in his 20s, and he has since 2000 and up to recent years continued to stalk and publicly defame them; “Zack Abrams” was also registered on Facebook as being located in Suwanee, Georgia at the same time my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks set up another address in Suwanee, Georgia apparently to avoid court notifications).  Public records on Lanie Lampard show that she has arrest and conviction records in Texas:

There are 2 Internet trolls, obsessed with trying to find as much “negative” or rather “fake news” about me! The two malicious and perjury idiots from Tennessee.

Ken Parks  In Internet slang, a troll is a person who starts quarrels or upsets people on the Internet to distract and sow discord by posting inflammatory and digressive,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses[2] and normalizing tangential discussion,[3] whether for the troll’s amusement or a specific gain.

  • Both the noun and the verb forms of “troll” are associated with Internet discourse. However, the word has also been used more widely. Media attention in recent years has equated trolling with online harassment. For example, the mass media have used “troll” to mean “a person who defaces Internet tribute sites with the aim of causing grief to families”.[4][5] In addition, depictions of trolling have been included in popular fictional works, such as the HBO television program The Newsroom, in which a main character encounters harassing persons online and tries to infiltrate their circles by posting negative sexual comments.Reply · 1d
  • Ken Parks I will make sure that the proper authorities will be notified and most likely arrest warrants will be issued against them for perjury and harassment. Also. the issue of defamation, slander and slander per se will be confronted in Criminal Court! It’s NOT revenge, but rather fixing the problem which they have been obsessed with for more than 2 decades. They are criminals and need to be brought to Criminal Court… and state psychiatric examination and treatment.Reply · 1d · Edited

Below are public Facebook posts from April, 2020 between my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks and his probable alias “Zack Abrams” that seem to indicate that in the last post my brother mistakenly used his own account to post a comment that seems to have been intended for his “Zack Abrams” account:

Those who have experience with understanding the way cults operate report that cult leaders and their followers often use elaborate tactics of stalking, libel, slander, harassment in all forms and overall aggressive intrusion into the lives of former cult members, media members who report on them, and anyone else they target as their “enemies.”  My brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks has used some of these kinds of tactics to harass our employers, our friends and neighbors, and he has tried to file false complaints against us with the police in various places attempting to have us arrested.  Here are some samples of that harassment:

Below is a copy of my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ blog page that demonstrates his harassment against our former neighbors in Connecticut and the people who purchased our former home.  His blog page also includes his distorted version of claiming others called us “troublemakers” and criminals, including the police in the town of Colchester, Connecticut.  One of our neighbors that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks apparently spoke to was arrested and convicted for throwing a party for her young teenage and pre-teen children in which she supplied alcohol to her children and their friends; one child had to be taken to the hospital for alcohol poisoning, but we did not report these neighbors to the police for this incident because we didn’t know about it until we read of it in the local newspaper.  Another incident with this neighbor occurred in 2000 in which my husband and I and other neighbors called the police because the husband and wife got into a physical fight in their yard in front of their young children that we and other people witnessed.  These incidents are public records.

In reality, the Colchester, Connecticut police department never at any time referred to us as “troublemakers” and in fact notified my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks to remove from his blog his libelous statements about the police department and about an individual police officer he named in his blog.

Below is the public record police report from 2018 that describes my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ attempt to file yet another false complaint, this time claiming that I “forged” my mother’s last Will and Testament.  He also falsely claimed that my mother’s estate was “worth approximately $250,000”; in reality, my mother’s former home was never worth that much, and in fact she had to foreclose on the property (which my brothers all knew about) due to a reverse mortgage she had taken out on the house in which she owed more money than the house was worth.  Around this same time in 2018 my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks and my three other brothers sued me pro se in Groton, Connecticut probate court, seeking to be granted ownership of our mother’s remains (but not our father’s remains) in the cemetery where my parents are  interred together.  The Groton probate court dismissed their utterly meritless, ghoulish and outrageous case:

My husband and I are not my brother Ken ”Pastor Max” Parks’ only target of harassment.  He has published posts in which he’s demonstrated that he is targeting churches and Bible study meetings in private homes in his area and elsewhere.   The first example below is my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ post regarding a church in Connecticut where one of the three sisters he tried to date back in the mid-1970s currently attends (we blocked out the photograph that my brother Ken Parks posted of one of the three Connecticut sisters he defames – children were also present in the photograph he posted).  In the mid-1970s my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks was in his early 20s and the three sisters were all teenagers:

Grace Fellowship Visited by Pastor Ken "Max" Parks, 11/18/2018

It was a typical cold day in Connecticut, and then there is the weather!

The decision was made to visit a quaint little church facility in a quaint little town. North Stonington provided the scenery, snow on the ground, most of the leaves had changed colors and died, and then descended to the hardness of the nearby surface to be scattered about by the wintry winds.

I arrived early and started to take photographs before making entry into the church building. This mysterious photographer apparently caught someone’s attention, and I obliged by waving at him and approaching the small facility. He introduced himself as Bob (pastor?) and he made mention from the onset how beautiful the church building is in comparison to others in the region. I told him I was visiting from the deep South and kept quiet about having previously lived 20+ years in Mystic/Groton area.

I asked, “Why is there not a Cross on the steeple?” He responded, “That’s the way the steeple came, with no Cross.”

I then inquired, “What is that thing up there? Is it a cell antennae?”

“No! That’s a lightning rod.”

“I see!” was my response. Thinking internally… no Cross… but a lightning rod. I wonder if they preach the message of the lightning rod?

Another person greeted me, Richard Lowe, a somewhat familiar face of the past. We had grown up in the same neighborhood and I also knew his younger brother, Mike, of whom I had known while in Jr. High School and Sr. High School. We chatted for a few minutes and I asked about their Sunday School class. I sat in.

The Sunday School class was doing a study on the Gospel of John, chapter 9. For the most part, I listened to their talk, which made me believe that they were also into “churchianity” (the love and devotion for church business and the leaders thereof). The reasoning was based on the following statements:

“I’m glad to be here today to listen to Pastor Bob’s sermon.”

“I grew up in ‘church’… and I ‘accepted’ Christ (I noticed no mention of repentance).”

On the discussion of the Jews, the Pharisees (religious righteous of the time of Christ dwelling among us), the leader of the Sunday School class mentioned that they had a residential Jewish family called the “Abrams.” I recognized the name and knew who they were. A photograph in the hallway revealed one of the family members.

I had been led by the Spirit to understand the reason for “fellowship” and that is to stir up love and good works (see Hebrews 10:24-25). But that was not the case here. The small Sunday School class consisting mostly of senior citizens, appeared to be more concerned about the natural study of John 9 and not so much about the spiritual element. I recognized the pride and the religious spirit of the members, but held back my tongue.

And at the end of the study, I brought up the meaning of this story about the blind man, and it was not so much about the natural healing but rather what Jesus pointed out as a spiritual healing. The Pharisees had asked, “Are we blind also?” And the final verse (v. 41) sums it all up with Jesus’ answer. However, the religious righteous spirits in the room did not comprehend what was expressed.

When one test the spirits, it is bound to happen that one comes across the spirit of churchianity. And before going to a Bible Study in a home that was not affiliated with any church business, my spirit was getting some warning signs that all is not well.

One of the members kept asking questions for further clarification. I did not sense ill will in his questions, but rather a need to seek the truth as a person still in the spiritual infant stage. As the meeting progress…ed, one person (let’s call him Yuri) accused the person in question (let’s call him Bob) of raising doubt and causing others to feel uncomfortable.

This basically stopped the flow of the Bible Study. I was also accused of interrupting (false statement). The home owner removed herself from the balance of the study, another woman cried, and I then intervened, “Speaking for Bob, I am glad that he asked questions, because as iron sharpens iron, so does a man sharpen the countenance of his friend. Thank you Bob.” (I had quoted from Proverbs 27:17)

When we finally closed in prayer, I discerned throughout the evening this Yuri character had never quoted any Scripture but had his unbiblical say. Even his prayer for the group was partially about himself and used terms to indicate selfishness and the “positive thinking doctrine” (Gee, where have I heard this). Being this was not my home, I quickly gathered up my Bible and left… shaking my head as I departed from the turmoil.

This was the worst Bible Study ever attended in my years. When I came home, I went onto the computer and immediately quit this meetup group. Lesson learned!

From 2014:

The following post from December, 2019 that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks posted depicts a charging lion and statements aimed at us. Again, there are strong indications that Zack Abrams is one of my brother’s aliases, and my husband and I strongly suspect that Robert Jones may be another alias. From December 29th, 2019 to March 2nd, 2020 my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks uncharacteristically did not make a single post, all the while making periodic posts with his ETC Ministries Facebook account and with the Zack Abrams account. Did people complain to Facebook about any offensive, alarming or threatening posts he may have made on his personal account (perhaps connected to his charging lion post and statements that seem to include others and not just us)? Did Facebook therefore suspend his personal account? (For the record, we made no complaints to Facebook.)

To the two idiots and trolls of Tennessee… aka “the troublemakers”…

  • Ken Parks These two Tennessee idiots have trolled me all over the Internet, produced a malicious and libelous website(s) about me, and are trying to disrupt my life, my family, and friends. They have the spirit of the scribes, Pharisees and hypocrites. Jesus aimed his truth directly to them and their ultimate destination, having called Him the captain of the devils (see Matthew 12:22-31), Jesus prophesied to His elect that they will do the same to you, call you a devil(s) and lie about you before magistrates… the same they did to Jesus. They will lie, cheat and deceive the Courts in their favor.

My brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks has published his admission that his motivation for stalking me, his own sister, and all of his other targets comes from his claims that he receives “dreams and visions” from his god to punish his enemies and all who refuse to believe that he is his god’s prophet.  Again, my husband and I believe that he is using his claim of being his god’s prophet to target “stupid Christians” so as to gain public support through the use of religious jargon and sensationalist lies against innocent private and public figures, and intimidate anyone who questions him (we highlighted sections in yellow).

“The message (preaching) of the cross is foolishness…to those who are perishing.

But to us who are saved…

It is the power of God.”…

The following Facebook post from 2017 likewise demonstrates that people who apparently feel harassed or offended by my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks have unfriended him and banned him from communicating with them.  We strongly doubt it was the photo alone that he posted that caused alarm or offense but there was probably a long enough history of my brother harassing or offending people and his posting this photo was most likely “the last straw” (yes, the pun is intended).  We don’t know who took this photo.  We also don’t know if he has threatened to file pro se lawsuits or has actually filed pro se lawsuits against other people:

Some may claim that I’m an angry old man. No! I speak as one who has had visions, dream dreams, and foresee the events ahead of us. Those who are liars and bear false witness will reap what they have sown.

I will say this much… For those who hold contempt against me and God who is for me and I for Him, there will come a day of recognition. And He will say to them, “I never knew you. Depart from Me, you that work lawlessness.”

And it may come to pass that the same liars and those who bear false witness against me will receive their just recognition in this world.

Some people might claim my dreams were coincidental. But they can’t explain how I knew of the event and how it was going to happen.

There are some who claim that prophecy is no longer… ah!
“And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions.” — Joel 2:28

In Christ Jesus, I can see clearly the deceptive practices of men, and their lies and bearing false witness. By coming against God’s saints, the lovers of darkness will pay in this world and ultimately at the end of the Age and the Day of His Judgment.

As my Great Grandmother would say, “You can mark my words!”

If someone is not one of his chosen, then they are apt to believe they are saved my mental exercise. And then they have their buddies wrestle with sin and how to handle it in the flesh, agreeing with each other in vain discussions and philosophies of men. I call it psycho-babble. Complete nonsense!

When I have to contend with liars, those who bear false witness, I know God is faithful insomuch that Truth will prevail over lying lips.

Finally, I get to bring witness against the false witnesses. Justice will prevail against those who try to bear false witness against one of His elect.

In my little understanding of the Scriptures and who I am… I know who I am and I have been “called out” to be one of His chosen. And by His word, He is faithful.

Unlike so many who purport to follow Christ, I am not a wimp, one who succumbs (gives up; surrenders) to the evil in this world, I am one of His elect, carrying the full armor of God in the spiritual war that manifests itself in the natural. Paul understood it and wrote about it. And ultimately he died for the sake of the faith in Jesus Christ. He was not a wimp!

As a disciple of Christ, a servant of the Lord, this is my heritage and righteous judgement against those who come against me. Am I overzealous? Is this Scripture out of place? Is God making a spiritual army of wimps?

Evil comes in a variety of packages. One is a false witness. Another is a liar. Justice will prevail against those who act with disdain upon His members of Ekklesia.

I know for a fact, never say anything to threaten a prophet of God (ordained not by men or by self, but rather appointed by the Father. Case in point:

A certain man’s ex-wife had remarried to lover-boy and yet had physical custody of his children. That gives you an idea how wonderful his ex-wife was as mother and designated by the Court.

It turns out during a return of the children after visitation, that the lover-boy had threatened the appointed man with, “Come out here yo…u bastard, and I’ll kick your ass!” The appointed man decided to leave matters such as this in the hands of God, “No sense in getting hurt when my Protector will do His thing.”

Albeit it may have taken some time, but God does things in His own time. Fast-forward to about 20 years later — the lover boy complained about the pain in his right leg. Dr.s’ diagnosis, “You have bone cancer in your leg.” Treatment did not resolve the issue, so the leg had to be amputated.” So much for doing any ass-kicking!

The ex-wife you say? Well, the Bible says that beauty withers as the grass of the field fades. And not only did it wither, but gained a few ugly pounds. So much for going up against one of His appointed!

Because I am a remnant, one of those “called out” (Ekklesia), I have been told, “You are a lone wolf” In other words, those involved in churchianity believe that I am a son of the father of lies. See how this hatred can fester into violence? And they think they are doing God’s will.
