It's already happened. A lot of Protestant seminary graduates, particularly Evangelicals, in the U.S. are awarded a "doctor's" degree, even though the closest they'll get to being a real doctor is when they're surgically excising money from some gullible fool's wallet.
That's DOCTOR Pat Robertson to you.
There are Doctors of Philosophy (PhD) as well as other Doctor degrees in many fields of study, not just theology.
Case and Point:
Many engineering schools offer a Doctor of Philosphy in Engineering as well as a Doctor of Engineering degree.
