Masonic references in the works of Gabriel García Márquez
One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967)
The Liberals, he said, were Freemasons, bad people, wanting to hang priests, to institute civil marriage and divorce, to recognize the rights of illigitimate children as equal to those of legitimate ones, and to cut the country up into a federal system that would take power away from the supreme authority. The Conservatives, on the other hand, who had received their power directly from God, proposed the establishment of public order and family morality. [p. 95.]
Father Nicanor commented from his sickbed: 'This is silly; the defenders of the faith of Christ destroy the church and the Masons order it rebuilt.' [p. 134]
... Colonel Aureliano Buendia, may he rest in peace, could have the effrontery to ask her with his Masonic ill humor where she had received that privilege.... [p. 324]
