    Does anybody know the meaning/translation into Spanish of this sentence?
    "That's why our culture's underlying City on a Hill morality remains unsoiled"

    Specifically, I don't understand "our culture's....morality"

    BTW, this text is comparing the US and the European views of sex; and City on a Hill is Washington.

    Thanks!
