The brothers will have their say, and in a very public way. The Faith & Freedom Coalition has revealed that David and Jason Benham will be among the luminaries speaking at the organization's upcoming "Road to Majority" Conference in the nation's capital, The Washington Times has learned.

The event is billed as a major gathering for some 2,000 people of faith, conservative activists, lawmakers and officials.

The Benham brothers were much maligned in mainstream news coverage for "expressing their strongly held Christian beliefs" and traditional values, a coalition source says. The pair also lost their starring roles in "Flip it a Forward," an HGTV television production scheduled to air in the fall season.

"The Benham twins are the most recent example of the media trying to silence anyone who professes their faith," says Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition. "We are honored to have them address our attendees."

The annual three-day conference, which begins June 19, is focused on pro-life, pro-family policy gains in the next Congress.

The many confirmed speakers include Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, John Bolton, Grover Norquist and a host of Republican lawmakers. Among them: Sens. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mitch McConnell, Ron Johnson, Mike Lee and Marco Rubio, plus Reps. Paul Ryan, Steve King, Marsha Blackburn, Louie Gohmert, Dave Camp and Michele Bachmann.
