The Devil's Advocate

Until 1983, the Catholic Church there was a special position - The Devil's Advocate. The work of this man was, to collect all the possible arguments against the canonization of the saint of the next candidate. In contrast to the devil's advocate, there was another post - the defender of God, whose work has been the opposite. In modern language the term "devil's advocate" is often used to refer to people who defend the position, which they themselves do not adhere.
