Gordon MacDonald: What's So Different About 'God Damn America'?

image Gordon MacDonald asks what is truly a provocative question: 

Is there a significant difference between Jeremiah Wright's "God damn America," and the comment so oft-quoted in evangelical pulpits (attributed to a well known preacher who shall go unnamed): "If God does not judge America for its sins, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah."

Don't quibble about word choice; think substance.  Is there a significant difference?

I'm not really sure that there is.
