Faith leaders around the U.S. signed a letter saying Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore is "unfit" to serve.

"As a person of faith, I wholeheartedly believe the courageous women who have shared their stories of being sexually preyed upon and assaulted by Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore as teenage girls," the letter said.

"These profound moral failings and crimes render Judge Moore unfit to serve in the U.S. Senate. I stand with and pray for these women who have bravely come forward and spoken out," the letter said.

The Hill reported that more than 300 faith leaders around the country signed the letter.

"The twin sins of misogyny and sexual abuse that pervade every corner of our society threaten the safety, dignity and well-being of the faith community. Religious leaders cannot condone crime against women as a minor mistake or a relic of the past," the letter said.

"As a leader in a faith community, I pledge to stand against the dark currents in our culture that dehumanize women and build a society in which everyone is safe and free to flourish."

Moore's youngest alleged victim, Leigh Corfman, told  NBC's "Today" show on Monday: "I told them (The Washington Post reporters) at that time… if they found additional people, I would tell my story. And they found those people."
