"That's too bad, she's missing a great party" works with what you thought he said and what he said
"She's back at her place, hugging the nimbus." [Nimbus clouds, that is.] "She went to introduce herself to Abe." [Referring to Lincoln.] "She had to take care of her goldfish." [The fish that died when she was 12.] Because saying that someone is dead, is in Heaven or has passed away is just too mainstream.
But somehow his sister dying didn't preclude him from going to a wedding reception. I can understand why OP would think what she did. And when it comes to euphemisms for dying, saying someone "went home", especially to be with the Lord/God/Jesus/insert god here is particularly annoying. Just say someone passed away, for crying out loud.
90+% of the entire world believes in a god of some sort, and there's no way for you to know for sure that there isn't one. And anyway, Jesus was a real, historically verified person who lived and died. Whether or not he was God or the Son of God is a matter of faith. Now I could mock you guys for your unbelief, but I won't stoop to your level.
Don't say random, highly improbable statistics without any evidence. I truly doubt more than 90% of the world believes in some sort of god, considering the atheism rates in East Asia, for example, are ridiculously high. The temples and shrines are nowadays based more on cultural tradition rather than an actual belief in a god. Atheism tends to be on the rise in developed countries while religion is still very popular in third-world countries, though this again depends on culture.
Lord does not equal Jesus Christ. Not everyone is a Christian you oblivious asswipe. And besides, lord means God and Jesus isn't god either in Christianity.
I'd rather party with Lorde. You weren't to know, it's not really something people will normally say or bring up when you first meet someone.
