With songs like The Outlaw, I Wish We'd All Been Ready, U.F.O., and Why Don't You Look Into Jesus, Larry Norman forged ahead against the ultra-conservative church culture of the 50s & 60s, which wanted nothing to do with his so called "demon music."

This week - a young lady wants to know if she should stay with the father of her child even though he's addicted to porn and doesn't want to get married anymore.
"I recently found out that my fiancé of 4 years had joined a swinger website and was talking to women behind my back. He did this once before to me a few years ago and it caused us to break up for 7 months. I don't know what to do because I am now pregnant with our daughter. We have a home together now and we were supposed to get married next year but I don't know now. He also said he doesn't know about marrying me anymore since his parents got divorced 3 years ago and now his older brother, whom he is very close with, is getting a divorce this month. He said divorce is so prevalent that he doesn't want to risk it. He has fallen away from the Lord and his view of marriage has been destroyed by the world. I don't know what to do. I know I went against the Lord when I had premarital sex. I guess this is my punishment. "
