In this case, “they” is Focus on the Family. Also in this case, Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., catches them at it:

I have no idea how good a congresscritter I’d make, and fortunately for you we’ll never find out. But if I ended up chairing a congressional committee, I would do one thing: I would put everybody who came before that committee, including the janitors, under oath. Lying to Congress is already a crime, but maybe the word “perjury” would get people’s attention.

  3. To be generous, I think the witness simply assumed the definition of “nuclear family” from assuming that “parents” must be opposite-sex.

As much as this topic has been in the news over the years, and as involved as Focus in the Family has been in those discussions, I am disinclined to ascribe this to ignorance, even if that is both a plausible and a simpler explanation. If this were some person from some group in Podunk that no one had ever heard of before, that would be different.
