Then you should do exactly what I said: write C code with a few C++ features. It still compiles as C++.

That said, why do you think poorly of C++ in the first place? For all the bad things about C++... heck, bad or not, I just find it to be barely adequate, but not exactly despicable. I can live with it, but if I could, I'd move on to something else. Visual Basic, C#, Python, whatever's next, I don't care. Just it better not be C++ again.
This guy explains it better than I ever could.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]
