American internet users go online for religious guidance


A quarter of American internet users have looked for religious or spiritual information online.

The Pew Internet and American Life Project survey found around 28 million adults have looked for the information on the internet.

In the days after the September 11 attacks, one in four US internet users went online to find information about Islam.

According to the New York Post, the report's author, Elena Larsen, says the users are already members of real congregations or religious groups. She says: "Almost all of them belong to some sort of congregation.

They're not replacing things people do in groups."
