How can a man claim freedom of speech yet be prohibited from calling Mohammed a liar?

I would like to hear Romney and Obama each state his opinion regarding the veracity of the “prophet” Muhammed’s claim that a deity spoke to him. We know, for example, that Romney believes that Joseph Smith was visited by the angel Moroni.

“In 1823, Smith said that while praying at night for forgiveness from his sins, he was visited by an angel named Moroni, who revealed the location of a buried book of golden plates as well as other artifacts, including a breastplate and a set of silver spectacles with lenses composed of seer stones, which had been hidden in a hill near his home. Smith said he attempted to remove the plates the next morning but was unsuccessful because the angel prevented him.” -Wikipedia.

Both claim that a man named Jesus from Nazareth in Galilee/ northen Palestine / Isreal was the “son” of a creator of the universe. I suspect neither may support Muhammed’s claim while simultaneously rejecting Islam. The fundamental “insult” to muslims is the assertion that Muhammed was a liar. If a man cannot use his freedom of speech to raise an alarm against liars, for what do we have a freedom of speech?
