Doctors and pastors

Does anyone else bristle at the idea of calling all PhD’s “doctors?” It reeks of pretentious puffery.

For me, a doctor is a medical doctor. I’ll call Ron Paul “Dr. Paul” because he is a an obstetrician. I can’t call RC Sproul “Dr. Sproul.” Plus, RC Sproul has a far more significant title than Doctor: Pastor.
