I think it you polled 100 people who say faith is an important part of their lives, not all would say they had dogmatic insistence on the truth of any proposition. The definition seems pejorative and alienating to me. I think it would be better if we were to embrace the usual spelling of the word and frame it in the way we believe to be constructive.
