I think that the strictly monotheistic faiths like Judaism, Christianity, and Islam will be thoroughly harmed by the discovery of intelligent life on other planets. 

I personally think that most of the christians that I know wouldn't be particularly bothered by intelligent life as far as religion was concerned. They are all quite happy to believe the bible but also are flexible enough to fit science in within their religious beliefs. I don't know the churchs' official theological beliefs around the subject but considering that the bible was written by men surely they could incorporate transcription issues or non literalism or something to explain why nothing was mentioned. I see no reason why, if the christian god was the only god he couldn't be the god of the aliens as well. I mean that last from a preserve the religion sort of a way not that I am trying to take away the aliens own religion or anything.
