There's a thing in psychology called "transference" where a person gets strong emotional and often, romantic attraction to their counselor. In a religious setting where a priest, pastor or rabbi is offering counsel to a woman, it's not uncommon either. These men know it's there and should be setting up a system to avoid it, some some are rotten scoundrels who use the opportunity. It's not a religion thing. It's a human thing.

He didn't forcibly rape them, and the article doesn't say that he was their boss, so what I'm seeing is that he "manipulated" these women into having sex. Don't women manipulate men all the time to get what they want? The knife cuts both ways.

“The alleged victims felt deprived of their free will and so the sexual activity was coerced or took place under coercive conditions” I wish they would actually give relevant details, instead of this generic statement that tells you nothing.
