Yes common belief is not Christianity, and Slava is a common belief. St. Elijah was surely not a Thunderer, but his persona was used as a substitute for a pagan deity of a Thunderer (among Slavs, Perun), thus people applying those pagan traits of the Thunderer to St. Elijah. Therefore people could worship Perun, say they are venerating St. Elijah, and they are happy, the Church is happy.

Church does not teach that he is thunderer people described him in folk tales. Folk tales and folk songs are not sources of Christian faith.

I read it, nevertheless, my answer is same.
