Mormons = awful. Fundie Islamists = no comment.

He's afraid to criticize Islam. That's BDS-infected Lawrence O'Donnell, that is, who had the following convo with radio host Hugh Hewitt (my emphasis):

HH: Would you say the same things about Mohammed as you just said about Joseph Smith?

LO'D: Oh, well, I'm afraid of what the…that's where I'm really afraid. I would like to criticize Islam much more than I do publicly, but I'm afraid for my life if I do.

HH: Well, that's candid.

LO'D: Mormons are the nicest people in the world. They're not going to ever…

HH: So you can be bigoted towards Mormons, because they'll just send you a strudel.

LO'D: They'll never take a shot at me. Those other people, I'm not going to say a word about them.

HH: They'll send you a strudel. The Mormons will bake you a cake and be nice to you.

LO'D: I agree.

HH: Lawrence O'Donnell, I appreciate your candor.

Despite the asininity of it all, it is refreshing to see a pundit admit he's actually afraid to [rightly] bash [radical] Islam. So, we'll never see O'Donnell go off on Muslims like he did Mormons. In other words, we should take what a moron like O'Donnell says with less than a grain of salt.
