Yes, many conditions and causes... often quite complex in their relations.
It's a very complicated set of circumstances, involving certain subtleties that would have been incredibly difficult to get through to householders who in all likelihood were still focusing on the sila aspect of the three-fold training and were yet to catch any "glimpse of the egoless nature, or anattata, and of the conditionality, or idappaccayata, of all phenomena of existence", either experientially or theoretically.
Hence, suttas which were morality teachings pitched at householders are often rather simplified in their content... yet still pretty much remain true to the deeper teachings mentioned above (unlike Jataka Tales, Dhammapada commentary stories for example, which over-simplify and distort the Dhamma nearly as badly as the OP quotation did).
