One in four American Internet users use the Web for religious purposes. Some 28 million Americans have looked for spiritual information online, according to a study released Sunday. Religious uses are more popular than online activities such as banking, gambling and stock trading, the poll said. In addition, one out of four users sought online information on Islam after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
