In the February 2019 deposition by Ken “Pastor Max” Parks’ then-second wife (divorced in 2023), taken while she was under oath, she falsely claimed that in 2004 a judge ordered our previous well-documented website, ministrywarning.com (what Ken falsely called “libelous”), to be taken down. That website wasn’t published until late 2005. In reality, there has never been any judge anywhere at any time who verbally or in writing banned us from exercising our free speech right to publish either our 2004 website therealkenparks.com, or our 2005 website, ministrywarning.com and same content website photographerscam.com. My husband and I were advised by attorneys to publish those websites and those websites were reviewed by attorneys to ensure they conformed with protected free speech laws. This current website has also been reviewed by an attorney, and, as with our previous websites, details our verifiable and well-documented accounts of all that my brother Ken Parks has done to us and to many other people.
Since the early 2000s my brother Ken Parks has been promoting and advertising his unregistered “ETC Ministries,” his unregistered “Simplicity of Christ Ministries” (“SOC Ministries”), and his unregistered and unlicensed photography and computer “businesses” (such as “Weddings Thru the Lens” and “Fotos by Ken”). Both his unregistered “ministries” and “businesses” were operated in the house deeded to his then-second wife with her full knowledge and support, prior to Ken’s divorce filings in late 2022 (finalized in 2023). Since my brother Ken Parks’ “ETC Ministries” and “Simplicity of Christ Ministries” are not registered with the state of Georgia nor with the IRS there is therefore no financial accountability or financial transparency associated with these unregistered “ministries” to make record of how much my brother Ken may receive in donations from those taken in and deceived by his deliberate misrepresentations about himself and his lies about the innocent victims that he is obsessed with defaming, apparently to obtain sympathy and financial gain. The same holds true for his unregistered and unlicensed “businesses” which, prior to his divorce filings in late 2022, he operated in the house owned by his then-second wife. As of this writing, Ken Parks now resides in an apartment in Sugar Hill, Georgia, Gwinnett County.
When Ken Parks was still married to his second wife, she confirmed in a phone conversation with my mother, which I witnessed, that she believed her husband is a “prophet of Jesus,” and that she refused to believe the public court and police records against her husband. She repeatedly stated and demonstrated that she believed all of her husband Ken Parks’ libelous, defamatory statements against innocent people and affirmed her full support of him publishing his libelous statements. In her 2019 deposition, Ken’s then-second wife also admitted to supporting her husband’s actions of filing his pro se lawsuits.
My husband and I voluntarily stopped publishing our ministrywarning.com website and same content website photographerscam.com in March, 2013. The verifiable truth of our websites seemed to be working in warning the public about my brother Ken Parks, who has made himself a limited-purpose public figure. We had noticed a significant decrease in my brother Ken Parks’ fraudulent, libelous, and defamatory activities online over time and consequently we also noticed over time low viewing traffic on our website. Soon after we voluntarily stopped publishing our ministrywarning.com/photographerscam.com website in March of 2013 the defamation and libel that my brother Ken Parks has published online and in public court filings in his meritless pro se lawsuits (all dismissed) – as well as his incitement of others against us – increased significantly, worse than ever before. Consequently, it became necessary to publish well-documented truth about my brother Ken Parks so as to responsibly exercise our Constitutionally protected free speech right to:
- Set up a network of support consisting of other victims of abusive pro se litigants for the purpose of working with our state and federal representatives to enact laws requiring sua sponte judicial review of pro se litigants’ lawsuits;
- Warn the public that my brother Kenneth Floyd Parks – a limited-purpose public figure – has been judged by state and federal courts to be an abusive litigant and by court order has pre-filing restrictions against him;
- Warn the public that my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks publishes false, deceptive statements to promote himself as a limited-purpose public figure seeking “public trust” (his words as found in public court records) as a “ministries” leader and “business” operator, and that he publicly and most likely privately libels and slanders many innocent private and public figures apparently to gain public sympathy and most likely financial support;
- Defend our names and reputations from the alarming sensationalist lies my brother Ken Parks has published and spoken since late 2000 apparently in order to incite his cult followers and others in the general public to harass us and/or, without actual cause in reality, be alarmed about us due to his false statements against us. This website is therefore posted for public interest purposes as both a consumer issue and a public warning issue due to our valid concern, and the valid concern of others, that my brother Ken Parks may have filed or will file more of his abusive pro se lawsuits against any number of other victims for the purposes of trying to intimidate people into silence and thereby violate their free speech rights, publicly defame people online and in court filings (court records are public records), and cause financial and psychological harm to those he targets as his “enemies” and “opposed” to him (his own words and implications). Weaponizing the court system to file meritless, harassing lawsuits – filed either pro se or with an attorney – is an infamously common tactic used by cult figures, such as my brother Ken Parks is, to attempt to silence the responsible free speech rights of their former followers or anyone in the general public with concerns about their claims, credibility, and moral, civil, or criminal actions.
My husband and I are apparently not the only ones getting the word of warning out about my brother Ken “Pastor Max” Parks. It seems apparent that my brother’s own aggressive, defamatory, and harassing words and actions against so many private and public citizens, as well as his own self-aggrandizing statements – including in his own published references to public court cases involving him – are the most likely reasons he apparently provokes some people in the general public to research public records – some of which can be found easily online – and confront him about who he really is, and apparently warn others. If people are actually warning others about my brother Ken Parks it seems apparent he has only himself to blame based on his own public Internet posts and his own public civil and criminal records.
My husband and I wish to make very clear that we in no way encourage or approve of anyone harassing or committing any other crimes against my brother Ken Parks or his second ex-wife. Nor do we encourage or approve of anyone harassing or committing any other crimes against any of my three other brothers who have also demonstrated support for his disturbing public and private actions and words (my brother Ken Parks has named my three other brothers in public court documents and possibly named them in private social media posts, and they joined him in a 2018-2019 probate court action against me which was dismissed against them).
If my three other brothers, together or singly, on their own behalf or on the behalf of our brother Ken Parks, begin to file pro se lawsuits against me and/or my husband, or engage in any public defamation, harassment, or incitement against us, then they will be named in this website and elsewhere, using the public records they have initiated. This will be done for two reasons: to publish documented facts so as to clear our names of any libel and defamation, and to warn the public about their pro se suing tactics (one other brother also has a long history of filing pro se meritless, abusive lawsuits against many other people).
