You're wrong, I'm afraid. Snail mail is a perfectly valid way to communicate, and is still a legal requirement in some situations and contexts. The injunction does nothing to abridge your constitutional right of free speech. Note that you do not have, and never had, a constitutional right to address a particular person in a particular way.
Whether and under what circumstances you can get the injunction modified or vacated depends on the particular circumstances of your case, and the reason(s) it was issued in the first place. Consult local counsel.

I was too dumbfounded and numb to even say anything. I view this as being unnecessary , censorship and abridging of my first amendment rights.
Seriously? It's not, but why would you have any need to communicate with your ex-spouse?
it is unconceivable that someone would be restricted to using only snail mail.
No, it's not.
This means we can never be at the same family function.
No, it doesn't. Simply being at the same "function" doesn't mean you have to communicate.
It means that ten or twenty years from now if we ran into each other we could not even speak.
It is unlikely that any court would interpret the order to bar any incidental communication that might result from a chance encounter in public or at a "function" that you both have a legitimate purpose for attending. And, again, why would you need or want to communicate with your ex-spouse? Of course, if both of you are fine with communicating, you can.
Am I right or wrong regarding the judges decision
how do I get this overturned?
You didn't say how long ago the judgment/order was entered, but it's likely that you can't. If you wanted to get it reversed, you needed to appeal it. Appeal deadlines are typically very short (I'm not aware of anywhere where the longest deadline is longer than six months).
Where can I find decisions to back me up?
I doubt that you can, but you can research the books in which the case decisions of the courts of your unidentified state are published. They are available at any law library.
