Now swap in the terms 'theist' and 'atheist' into the appropriate places and voila, all should become clear to those still struggling here.
Interesting analogy. But apples and oranges.
Theist believe that god exist.
Atheist do not.
Agnostics are atheist that have not come out of the closet.

Look at all them homosexual republicans refusing to promote gay marriage but want to have a bit of hows ya father in the public bathrooms.
Being a self professed atheist would be equally disastrous politically.
