At least for me its very difficult to make the line between preventing hate speech and allowing the freedom. I'm thinking to launch a lemmy instance, but the targeted audience is very sensitive to religion topics, and i'm sure if i allow it, this could lead hate to speech at some point and may fuel violence. Also, from my prospective, i just want my audience find new good things far from porn, porn sites are a lot, and i don`t want to mix it with other topics that can very constructive.
So please tell me your opinion, if banning these 2 topics can effect the freedom of speech.

I think "suppress the freedom of speech" is a sort of clumsily applied term here. What you're trying to implement are effective house rules and I really don't see anything wrong with that. Without simple rules like that, people could just hop into your space and be abusive assholes then claim "FrEe SpeEcH". I'd say go right ahead and do what makes you feel comfortable.
