I am sure that all that would do to the religious community is cause them to do some logical acrobatics to make it seem like their religious texts actually support the idea of alien life

I don't know of any religion that claims there isn't any extra-terrestrial life, so I don't see why it would be a problem for any religion if there were.

Christian missionaries would be on the way before you could drop a hat. Then the Muslims, not to be outdone, would follow suit.

Of course, God would always have created man in his image. Not those octopi from Sirius. And Jesus, don't forget Jesus. Lol.
Fatihah: It's like your mother making spaghetti and after you taste it and don't like it, you say "well my mom must not exist". Not because their is no logical evidence but because she doesn't do what you want.
