could someone plese explain the revolts of vendee to me PLEASE! just the basics

Little Italian Girl :
"Once the French Revolution degenerated into a bloody tyranny as the heads of monarchists and republicans alike rolled, any opposition to what was going on in Paris and the larger urban centres, where resistance was suicidal, perforce had to be armed. Thus it was that the Revolution was threatened not only by foreign armies on its borders, but by armed revolt inside France as well. As in the later Russian Revolution, the white armies seemed at one point in a position to strangle the revolutionary regime, but failed for lack of unity. In early 1794 Robespierre’s Convention decided to exterminate the Vendéens to the last man, woman and child. If the French Revolution was the first modern ideology, were the Vendée massacres the archetype of the modern genocides?"

Gawaine R :
"The French Revolution unfolded over a period of several years. Many of its supporters hated the Catholic Church, and all organized religion. When the revolutionaries seized the property of the Church and sold it to pay off the national debt, the conservative peasants of the Vendee rebelled and caused a lot of trouble for the revolutionary governments. The Vendee was a bit like the Bible belt is today."
