Insecure at any speed

My Wordpress installation got hacked one too many times. I'm done with Wordpress. And pretty much done with PHP as well. What do I move on to now?

First and foremost, I'm looking for a setup that is utterly paranoid about user input - whatever I'm using, I want it to be on top of some framework that sanitizes all input before it ever gets to the business logic.
I also want to actually have some separation of code and data, unlike the giant mess you get with PHP.
My primary uses are a couple of image galleries and a couple of webcomics. Some kind of commerce would be nice too - I've always vaguely wanted to let folks be able to order prints of my art, as well as a small comics press that may be happening in the future. Plus the usual stuff like a blog, some static pages, rss feeds for everything, tagging, search.
I have a few domains, and would greatly prefer to be able to manage them all from within one admin backend instead of having a separate installation for each one that can get out of date.
If a client came to you as a web developer with this overall feature list, what would you reach for? What framework, what packages for it? Bonus points for pointing me to a web host that does a really good job running that framework, super extra bonus points if you're a security-aware webdev who might be interested in being paid to get this up and running so I can just keep on drawing - I'd really love to be able to not get my hands much dirtier than some css and templates.
