    In 2017, Dennis Heath shared a story claiming that a supposed body language expert could determine that a woman who accused then-Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate from Alabama, Roy Moore, of sexual misconduct was lying based on her body language. Heath said as of late he has shared fewer stories of that nature. "One of the things that I saw during the election season and has been confirmed is that there was an awful lot of fake stuff to try to influence people," he said. More recently, Heath said, he has made posts saying, "Hey, we need to check to be sure that it's accurate."

    A 2017 post from Dennis Heath recalls a time when "the men went to work not the wife" and "the Wife was content with her lot." When asked what this post meant, Heath said it harkens back to his firmly held religious views. "Within the family it's not the responsibility of the wife to support the family. It's the man's responsibility," he said. "Biblically ... the husband is responsible for taking care of his family. But then you can still look in the Bible, and look in the book of Proverbs, and it says the most Godly of women are the ones that rise up early in morning and take care of their family but can also go out and purchase a field and engage in business." He said he would never say that a woman should not work or could not work, but he said God does not expect women to work.

    A 2017 post by Denis Heath shows an article claiming that Khizr Khan, the father of a U.S. Army captain who died in the Iraq War, was part of the Muslim Brotherhood after he spoke at the Democratic National Convention. Heath said as of late he has shared fewer stories of that nature. "One of the things that I saw during the election season and has been confirmed is that there was an awful lot of fake stuff to try to influence people," he said.

    In 2015 Dennis Heath shared this post. In the three years since he shared the post, he said he has learned more about the religion of Islam after taking religious studies courses at Randall University — a Free Will Baptist college in Moore, Okla. "What I've learned is that much like our own religious practices in this country with Protestants and Catholics, you have those that have a very strict adherence," he said. "There are some people who practice strict adherence to Islamic practices and interpret what the Quran says that would cause them to do something like on 9/11. I would say that that group is not representative of all Islam."

    Dennis Heath posted this article in 2015 about the Texas attorney general declaring that local clerks could defy the Supreme Court and deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Accompanying the article, Heath wrote, "I would that all states follow suit. We can stand firm in our adherence to godly living against the tide of evil." When asked if he would allow a clerk to deny a same-sex couple a marriage license because of the clerk's religious beliefs, Heath said he would not. "The way it is now, I couldn't do that and I wouldn't do that," he said Thursday from his office at the Town Office.
