Like pretty much all other religions,Buddhism teaches that violence & murder are wrong.Like the others,its adherents have also broken their own rules.One sad fact that history bears out again and again,is that Religion is usually co-opted by power mongers,who use it to CONTROL people for their own ends,which often involve dehumanizing others and taking their land,property,gold,etc. by force.This is why I DO NOT TRUST "Organized" Religion,and believe it far healthier to find ones own way to the divine.

In general,and from Ayns info,it appears that Buddhists are less hung up on sex than most popular religions.I think there may be some Tantric Varieties of the religion that deal with it less vaguely,but most westerners haven't heard much about these sects.(pun implied)

One of the steps of the Noble Eightfold Path, it is a complete awareness of that which happens in ones mind and body and how they interact. According to Buddhist scriptures, right mindfulness is a way to remain focused on these things continuously without getting involved with them and without becoming attached to them.
Complete mindfulness comes with practice, with the development of certain states of mind, where an individual becomes detached from the material things he would ordinarily seek, gains control over his or her thoughts, desires, and impulses and achieves a complete and continuous awareness of what is happening both in the internal world and the external world.
With right mindfulness comes the awareness of ones true nature and the ability to deal with the feelings and movements of the mind peacefully with detachment and right understanding. One realizes the fleeting nature of the sensory world and of things in general and thus learns to accept things with equanimity. Right mindedness is the key to follow the eightfold path diligently.

In Buddhism, war is seen as an unnecessary evil, an act of akusala ( so karmacally bad that it brings about future suffering as well). In the Buddhist scriptures, there is no justification for war. However, in life, war is sometimes necessary though not always desirable. One may think that the act of detachment would make war easier, but if this is the case, then said Buddhist is not in the right-mindfulness. Many Buddhists have fought to defend their countries and in some wars, Buddhists were the aggressors. But in the act of war, Buddhists should remember that there is no room to hate his enemy. He must practice compassion even in war.

Buddhism began by encouraging its practitioners to engage in smrti. This is the kind of meditation that Buddha himself did in under the bodhi tree, and is referred to in the seventh step of the eightfold path. The bases for all meditation are shamatha and vipashyana.
Shamatha is often translated as calm abiding or peacefulness. It is the development of tranquility that is a prerequisite to further development. Vipashyana is special insight, and involves intuitive cognition of suffering, impermanence, and egolessness.
Only after these forms were perfected does one go on to the more hard-core kinds of meditation. Samadhi is concentration or one-pointed meditation. It involves intense focusing of consciousness.
Samadhi brings about the four dhyanas, (absorptions) Buddha refers to samadhi and the dhyanas in the eighth step of the eightfold path, and again when he died. Dhyana is rendered as Jhana in Pali, Ch’an in Chinese, Son in Korean, and Zen in Japanese, and has, in those cultures, become synonymous with meditation as a whole.
Having said all that it can be summed up thusly: Ananda, Buddha's cousin, once asked him if there was one particular quality one should cultivate that would best bring one to full awakening. Buddha answered: Being mindful of breathing.

"Breathing in long, he discerns that he is breathing in long; or breathing out long, he discerns that he is breathing out long. Or breathing in short, he discerns that he is breathing in short; or breathing out short, he discerns that he is breathing out short. He trains himself to breathe in sensitive to the entire body, and to breathe out sensitive to the entire body. He trains himself to breathe in calming the bodily processes, and to breathe out calming the bodily processes."
( copied and pasted from The Samyutta Nikaya 54.13)

I chose Orthodox Agnostic Fundamentalism because even our clergy are encouraged to enjoy sex... responsibly, of course.

Good to hear that they have been thoughtful enough to consider the Sex issue in Budhism. Even Sports Illustrated only goes so far as having a Swimsuit Issue.
