The lp gas suppliers here have started putting dielectric unions at the house just after the copper underground pipe. To me this creates a lightning hazard.

They have to do that because they don't want us using their gas pipe as an electrode- that is dangerous. The nec forbids using the gas pipe as an electrode.

no, 2 ground rods, have to bond gas pipe in certain cities here, usually we do hot/cold/gas @ water tank. Some houses have all pex.

This seems ludicrous: can't use the pipe as an electrode but sure as hell as when it enters a residence you need to bond it (with the option to the service N/G or a grounding electrode) and thus making it practically an electrode itself.
I was misunderstood saying that I terminated the gas bond to the sub; I terminated the #6 into the sub and abandoned the gas bond. When I get back there I will probably hook it back up, reluctantly, but suppose there is no corrugated tubing present for the gas feed? It looked to be straight piped to me.
The following is the ASGE gas code and bonding is 7.13.2.....I've never had an inspector worry aout gas pipe bonding and it is confusing.
