Ortho-skeptics, more common that realized?

An interesting review in this week's Ha'aretz of a book written by a Jewish columnist at the Guardian newspaper in Britain. While the basic subject revolve around the fact that, apparently British Jews seem to have more problems integrating their British and Jewish selves, this little quote may be of more interest to us observant apikorsim:

The dimension that Sara adds to Freedland's probe into the diverse aspects of his Jewish identity is that she has retained her adherence to Orthodox practice, yet has apparently abandoned her belief in God. Her son concludes that this agnostic Orthodoxy - undoubtedly widespread among modern educated practicing Jews - reflects his own position on religion.
