Invited friend for a drink; response was “I wouldn’t want to deprive you of time with your friends and family”?
I emailed someone (who I thought was a long-time friend) for a drink. We’re friends through church and shared an apartment about 20 years ago.
His response? “How thoughtful of you; I wouldn’t want to deprive you of time with your friends and family, so I respectfully decline. But thanks for the invitation!”
How insulting was his response?

He told you to F off in a polite way...when was the last time you talked to him? Sounds like you have not been a good friend to him.

He may want to decline you in the most polite way he can think of. But his response is so fake that one may feel insulted.

insulting would be no way in hell do I want to waste my time having a drink with you do not contact me loser.
thanks for the invitation but I respectfully decline is pretty mild
