    Eh, you're going to have to give a better reason than "it could charge redstone" (redstone in its current form doesn't need to be charged) and "it would be good for trolling" (because we need features implemented just to let people troll people... -.- )

    I think a lightning rod would attract any lightning that strikes in that chunk of the world (16 x 16 area). Also this could be used for a charged creeper farm.

    I think that it should be two iron bars on top of each other with nothing above or next to it, if it is added.

    Placed in a village (and spawned atop a "church" structure) any lightning that would spawn within the village hits the lightning rod instead. This would prevent villagers from turning to witches (and the loss of an important villager). Lightning is one reason among many you do NOT let villagers "roam free". The only way to keep your villagers alive and useful is to enslave and imprison them. This is silly. A "lightning rod" that spawns with the "church" (and not all villages spawn with a church) would go a long way towards the dream of "free range villagers" with the 1.14 update.
