In a landmark victory for Christian conservatives, Maine voters have narrowly chosen to make their state the first in the nation to repeal its law protecting gay men and lesbians from discrimination, according to all-but-official referendum results published today. Casting ballots on Tuesday in a single-issue ''people's veto'' plebiscite, nearly 52 percent of voters backed the repeal despite pleas from the state's popular independent Governor and almost a half-million dollars in campaign spending by gay, lesbian and civil rights advocates. The new law they struck down had barred discrimination against gay men and lesbians in employment, housing, credit and public accommodations.
