  •  But they are not moons! (5+ / 0-)

    from Dictionary.com:

    2.  A natural satellite revolving around a planet.

    ergo, if Pluto is not a planet, it cannot have moons.  Satellites maybe, but not moons.

    I know, we will call them moons officially and then force the reverse argument and make Pluto a planet again!
