We have invited another couple over for dinner.
I asked them to bring a dessert (and mentioned I cannot eat walnuts or pecans.)
I asked if they had any food sensitivities...and was informed that they don't eat pork or most seafood.
I was then told by another person, that I was RUDE for
#1 asking our guests to bring something and
#2 stipulating what they could not bring (no walnuts or pecans).
What do you think?

It could be rude to some people that you asked them to bring a dessert. The thought behind it being that you are the hostess and are inviting them to come dine on your dime. If they had offered to bring something, then there would be no issue at all.
I see no problem with you mentioning the food sensitivity, unless it is the type of person who is offended by being asked to bring something. By restricting what they are bringing, you would be 'adding insult to injury'.
JMO on all and if you were my friend I wouldn't care if you asked.

Not rude. I always offer to bring something. As far as the food sensitivity... very thoughtful of you.
