It comes from people.  Why would pagans be better than anyone else?

 Right, they're not. But the implication, when people use derogatory terms to describe others (even if the others in question are idiots), is that they *are better than anyone else, or that some are better than others. That kind of divisiveness hurts everyone who practices a non-mainstream religion, or a different walk of a particular path, b/c it creates stereotypes. It's the exact same thing as Catholics who consider non-Catholics not really Christians, Christians who look down on Jews, or Orthodox Jews who look down on Reform Jews, you know? It's an immature understanding of the world and the people in it to expect everyone to be the same, at the same time. Reacting in fear to differentness (which to me is what it all comes down to, really) or in irritation to stupidness really just shows the limitations of the reactor.

Goddess grant me:
  The power of Water,
  to accept with ease & grace what I cannot change.

  The power of Fire,
  for the energy & courage to change the things I can.

  The power of Air,
  for the ability and wisdom to know the difference.

  And the power of Earth,
  for the strength to continue my path.
