Feeeding Carnivores

Dear Veghedda,
My non-vegan friends do provide a vegan meal when I visit. Now they say I should return the favor and serve them meat, Conflicted in Clinton Corners

Asbeing vegan has a moral component, not wanting to support animal cruelty, you are not obligated to sidestep this for guests. Even if your friend do not agree that being vegan is the way to reduce cruelty, they should not expect you to abandon your values. It is important for all vegans to know how to make some really tasty vegan dishes to serve both ourselves and others so they can learn that meatless does not equal miserable.
