I actually don't think the Church (or any religion for that matter) has that much to lose. Almost every religion has some form of higher entity, be
it celestial or infernal in nature, and Aliens could easily be passed off as these, making their position in fact stronger. In fact if I remember
correctly the Vatican has people that are actively looking into the matter. There's one person in particular that I'm thinking about, but his name
is eluding me.
The way I see it, political leaders have the most to lose. Any way the existence of Aliens is spun it will pretty much force humanity as a whole to
reconsider their position in the universe, which then will most likely lead to massive socio-political changes which will force most political leaders
out of power.
