Because Jesus was a spiritual light in a world of corruption and darkness, He stood out like a shag on a rock. In case you aren't aware, this shag idiom is an Aussie reference to a sea bird alone on a rock in the middle of the ocean, not quite the same as Mike Myers' use of the word as Austin Powers. Jesus wasn't politically correct, but He was spiritually correct.
