David Casper

I like to live, live to love, and love to like. I am a Catholic musician, blogger, speaker, apologist, and ADD-sufferer. I have ten fingers, ten toes, a goatee, and a cheap watch. I enjoy monocles, moustaches, and proper grammar. If any of these characteristics sound appealing, please feel free to inform me of that at davidcaspermusic@gmail.com. (You may contact me that way for other reasons as well.)

    The Theology of Sound

    sudden clarity clarence

    A question for your consideration: Why does music hold such power over the human heart? Let that percolate for a minute, then read on. As a Catholic musician, I am particularly enamored with two things: theology and sound. I dive passionately into the depths of the Eschaton just as eagerly as I plunge myself headlong […]

    The Silence of the Lamb


    Ladies and gents, I think I might be clinically insane. There are many reasons I think this might be true, not the least of which is my propensity for cackling maniacally while formulating plans to take over the world, but if you’re not entirely convinced, I think I could prove my point if you just […]

    What Love Is

    Ah. That clears things up.

    Hey. Wanna try a little experiment? Search the Internet for the definition of “love” and see what you get. I tried this just recently and discovered something rather incredible. Specifically, I wanted to know what our society thinks love is. We as Catholics know that society’s understanding of love is pretty screwed-up, but I wanted […]

    The ACTUAL Reason Contraception is Wrong


    Lately, I’ve been on the Internet. Depressing, I know. But I have. And in particular, I’ve noticed a widespread rash of anger directed at that crotchety old institution full of crotchety old men with crotchety old ideas: the Catholic Church. Seems there’s this thing happening out there in the “real world” (a phrase whose quotation […]

    Why I Believe in Gay Equality

    Or a dog who finally discovers the joys of Beggin' Strips.

    First things first: I apologize for my extended hiatus from posting blogs. Let’s just say a lot of very significant and life-changing things happened to me one after another. Second things second: I’d like to return to my regularly scheduled programming by speaking about a rather snaggly issue in our state/country/world at the moment: gay […]

    Unsolicited Advice on Kissing


    There’s something to be said for a good kiss. That said, what is to be said cannot be said because it loses something in the saying. So say what you will, but to say that you can say all that needs to be said about a good kiss is to say that you can say […]

    How to Read the Bible

    At some point in there, apparently Santa Claus shows up and starts telling people to "look at your life through heaven's eyes."

    When I was a kid – probably around sixth grade or so – I decided that I wanted to read the Bible. I’d heard a lot about this Jesus fellow at church and in Sunday school, but I’d never actually just sat down and read the book He wrote. So I did. Or at least […]

    How Far Is Too Far?


    There are some questions that never seem to get properly answered when you ask them. “Daddy, why is the sky blue?” “Mommy, where do babies come from?” “Aunt Edna, could you help me reconcile the thermodynamic principle of entropy with the theory of evolution?” But the one that probably most frustrates high school teens, and […]
