Students in one of my classes were asked to describe themselves for an assignment about angle of vision and point of view. One of the students began their assignment thusly:

I am a Christian . I believe in God the Father, Jesus His Son, who saved us from our sins.

What about that second sentence is necessary? I know what a Christian believes in; I don't need a catechism lesson for an English assignment.

But then the student went on later:

I believe people can be with who they want, as long as they don’t display it in public. I really don’t like public display of affection for anyone. Get a room.

The student is talking about how they aren't gay, but... Again, providing more information than is necessary for the assignment. I don't think "prude" was one of the categories for "angle of vision" that was listed in our textbook.

The upside of this is that I have a couple of students who are atheists. :)
