Very complex and controvertial subject.... All metals have a natural voltage potential (this part is not controvertial). The idea of bonding is that if you connect all underwater metals it will equalize those voltage potentials therefore no galvanic current will flow, thereby eliminating glavanic corrosion.

I have my own ideas about whether its a good or bad thing to do but I don't want to start a flame war
