The devil a lawyer? Somewhat...

People sometimes like to point at Satan and say that he was a lawyer or advocate in talking about defense attorneys. The implication is that lawyers who defend people are people who will twist logic to get their client acquitted. In reality, Satan in the bible was on the other side of the fence. He was perhaps the first prosecuting attorney. If you look at the story of Job it's God who defends Job's faith while Satan is the one who is trying to get him damned to hell. Not quite the same thing.
