With the no-parse flag you already disabled syslog-ng's parser so you 
got the raw apache log on the sending side. However to ensure that the 
receiver gets the message intact a protocol-compliant on-wire format 
must get used. You seem to use the old RFC3164 format so try

template("<30> $R_ISODATE $HOST $MSG\n")

of course you can change the priority, timestamp and hostname fields to 
whatever suits you best.
