High school students are rallying behind their metalhead principal after a number of concerned parents have been petitioning to have her removed for stating on her personal Instagram profile that she listens to IRON MAIDEN.
Students at Eden High School in St. Catharines, Ontario have started a petition to keep their principal, a Mrs. Sharon Burns, in the institution’s administrative office, saying “She spreads nothing but love and kindness, and is probably one of the best and most enthusiastic principals the school has ever had.”
The student’s petition is in response to a petition laid out by a number parents (who are obviously not IRON MAIDEN fans) of some of the students who claim the following: “As concerned parents with impressionable children at Eden High School in St. Catharines, Ontario, we are deeply disturbed that the principal assigned to the school blatantly showed Satanic symbols and her allegiance to Satanic practices on her public social media platforms where all the students can see them under @edenprincipal (not her personal account). Our school is based on inclusion, and openly displaying Satanic symbols (on a public social media platform) that directly goes against the principles of the vast majority of families who represent the school, is not inclusive. As parents we are demanding her transfer to another school. Please replace her with another principal who aligns with the values of the families at Eden and will not sabotage the teaching or upholding of those values and will not try to introduce impressionable students to Satanic practices or symbolism.
Will provide more pictures if you have more questions. You can also see the blatant display of the 666 symbolism in a screenshot of her post in comments below. We could only put one picture in this campaign.”
You can see the picture below which plainly shows a couple of hardcore IRON MAIDEN fans proudly displaying their “Trooper Eddie” flag and giving the “devil horns”. Good thing she didn’t post an undying love for BEHEMOTH or MAYHEM, right? Or DEICIDE for that matter.
The student’s petition states the following: “Recently, there has been a petition going around to “remove” the principal of Eden high school. It is ridiculous that a couple of parents only judge her role as a principal only based on an Instagram post. (About liking the band Iron Maiden. That’s it.) Eden High School is a public school. Not a Christian school. If you somehow don’t like the principal of your child, grandchild, relative etc.’s school, then send them to another one. The principal has made so many efforts to remind students that eden is a diverse place. She has even turned a whole room into a prayer room for students who are practicing religions other than Christianity, like practicing Islam. She has made Eden a safe space for so many people. She spreads nothing but love and kindness, and is probably one of the best and most enthusiastic principals the school has ever had. If you would like to bring some light to this whole petition, please consider signing!”
And just like that, it’s like the 80’s all over again. You can show some support for Sharon by signing the student’s petition above.
