On Wednesday, we told you about Quinn Bennett, a 10-year-old girl the Church of Scientology is touting as its "youngest self-made humanitarian," which is Scientology-speak indicating that young Quinn has personally donated at least $100,000 for the church's expansion efforts.

(For those of you who keep bringing up an anonymous commenter over at Mike Rinder's blog who claims that Quinn didn't donate her own money, we'll point out that our issue is with the church promoting this young girl as a 'humanitarian' in order to set an example for other church members.)

As we explained on Wednesday, former Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder has been documenting what a disaster Scientology's "Ideal Org" project is, with members pressured to raise millions for unneeded buildings that then sit empty. The constant push to donate more and more money — even if it means maxing out credit cards and taking second mortgages on their homes — is one of the reasons longtime members have been abandoning the church in recent years. That only seems to have ratcheted up the pressure to donate for those who are left.
