Today, I was at a wedding reception with loud music. A guy told me that his sister couldn't be there because she "went home to be with her boy." I said, "That's too bad, she's missing a great party." He paused and repeated, "She went home to be with her LORD." FML

I can't imagine the Lord throws that great of a party so it does suck that she's mussing it.

"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.

Seriously, how does this have so many up votes? How has no one ever heard that expression? It's used ALL THE TIME! Also, comment 68 was an accident, it was suppose to go somewhere else.

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.

1. she went home to pray
2. her brother knows way to much about her sex life
3. she went back to her castle because the lord of the castle requested her presence

Personally I think 3 is most likely

The brother was using a runaround tactic of telling OP that his sister is dead, and OP misheard, due to loud music, that she was with a boyfriend. Frankly, it's odd he'd bring something like that up at a party, but whatever.

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.

Yeah 75, you fail. I'm guessing you never of the Holy Trinity: God, Jesus & the Holy Ghost. You seem pretty confident for someone that has no idea what she's talking about.

Well, that was kind of an odd way to say it at first since it seems like you obviously didn't know her very well or I'm sure you'd know why she wasn't there...either way, that would have been awkward. We all probably would have done the same thing.

Are you that oblivious to not know that "Lorde" is a music artist? She did read and was making a play on words. Before you call someone out, you should check to see if it is not yourself who is mistaken.
