WWJD? Downsize!

Will the "team of [fraudulent] mavericks" seize the controls and slash earmarks in time to save god's li'l helpers who focus on all our families? The outlook looks grim:

Focus on the Family plans to restructure its distribution arm, a move that will affect 46 employees through layoffs or reassignment next year.

Over the past few years, Focus has seen a significant decline in its sales of books, CDs and DVDs, which the organization blames on competition from online retailers and large retailers like Wal-Mart.
I'm down with almost any sequence of phrases that ends with "and it's all Wal-Mart's fault," but I have to wonder how Wal-Mart is taking market share from FotF. Is Wal-Mart now selling books, videos, and recordings instructing hopeful Christian parents in the best ways to pray away the gay and prepare their blastocysts to gain acceptance to Liberty University?
