Agreed. Neither Voodoo nor sex caused a fire - a candle knocked over did. It is frustrating to observe such a common story of negligence portrayed in a sensational fashion.
From what I've noticed English Wikinews seems to have a tradition of misleading title, although in this case I would argue that voodoo was indeed a cause of the fire. Voodoo is a joke, voodoo priests should be sent to jail for fraud, and those who seek their services to an insane asylum.
the issue of Voodoo of some flavor (which one?) being a joke has little to nothing to do with whether someone knocked over a candle during sex or whether someone was careless with a big object.
btw, what sort of sex doesn't involved ritual? sex usually involves very specific behavior often unique to a participant's culture. remove voodoo entirely and leave this as a story about a woman surrounded by candles for a sex act... and it still sounds like a ritual. 14:49, 2 March 2011 (UTC)
