A new study shows a growing number of people in the United States are becoming disillusioned with organised religion.

Some 25% young Americans told a survey conducted by Trinity College in Connecticut that they have no religious affiliation.

However, only 7% of them say they're atheists.

Western Michigan University comparative religion professor Brian Wilson said many were into spirituality.
