670 THE SCORE: Cubs, CAIR To Work Together Against IslamophobiaR

Radio show 670 The Score covered the joint statement between CAIR-Chicago and the Chicago Cubs regarding Joe Ricketts’s leaked emails:

Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts on Monday condemned hateful emails from his father, Joe Ricketts, and announced in a joint statement with the Chicago-based Council on American-Islamic Relations that his organization has an agreement for working together against Islamophobia.

The Cubs, CAIR and several other Muslim groups held a meeting on Feb. 8 after the revelation of racist and Islamophobic emails from Joe, the patriarch to the family’s ownership group. The emails, which dated from 2009 to 2013, were released by Splinter News two weeks ago and included Joe Ricketts writing: “I think Islam is a cult and not a religion. Christianity and Judaism are ... based on love whereas Islam is based on ‘kill the infidel’ a thing of evil.”
