LEAWOOD, Kan. — Attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund are offering free legal assistance to Maine churches that become the targets of Internal Revenue Service complaints in the wake of Question 1. Question 1 opponents are actively encouraging their followers to report churches to the IRS in the wake of their unsuccessful effort to block voter approval of the measure, which restored the legal definition of marriage in the state to one man and one woman.
